ABSTRACT:
The objective of the present study was to explore various job-tasks performed by nursing teachers to accomplish their roles and responsibilities. A qualitative research design was chosen. Total 08 Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) were conducted with nursing teachers and nursing students till data saturation. Each FGD consists of five subjects and lasted for 30-35 minutes. The various themes generated during Focus Group Discussions among nursing teachers and nursing students were Classroom/ Theoretical Teaching; Clinical Teaching; Clinical Supervision; Nursing Skill Lab Teaching; Evaluation; Administration; Guidance and Counselling; Scholarly Work and Miscellaneous Work. Under the domain of evaluation, the job-tasks were categorized as classroom evaluation and clinical evaluation, while under the domain of administration, the job-tasks were categorized as academic assistance and recording and reporting. The subjects reported various job-tasks performed by nursing teachers under different domains and sub-domains. The findings of the present study provided a great insight on multi-dimensional role of nursing teachers. However, with the changing scenario and educational reforms, these roles need to be explored constantly to meet various learning needs and development requirements of nurse teacher's skills so that quality nursing education can be provided to nursing students.
