AbstractDespite a call for increased emphasis on health education within the Hong Kong acute healthcare setting, in reality nurses conduct only minimal health education and do not model good educational practice for students. At the baccalaureate level, nursing education programmes aim to provide students with practical experience of best practice and international standards of care. This study describes the experiences of nursing students in providing health education to in-patients at an obstetric unit in Hong Kong. A qualitative research study using a phenomenological approach was conducted at a major public hospital. Data were collected using participant observation, debriefing notes, students' reflective journals and semi-structured interviews. Four themes emerged from the data: (a) effective knowledge building, (b) being a professional nurse, (c) refining learned skills, and (d) greater cultural awareness. The student experiences were further influenced by the patients' responses, the expectations of both patients and nurses concerning the health educator's role, and the role of the clinical teacher. Study findings highlight the experience of the students in conducting health education, something which has not been adequately examined previously, and demonstrates the benefits of independent clinical learning. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
