Clinical Teaching Associate (CTA) Information

Welcome to the Integrative Practicum Experience. Without you, the Integrative Practicum experience would not be possible. Nurses, who give their time and talent to students, as Clinical Teaching Associates (CTA), greatly contribute to the advancement of the nursing profession. A one-on-one guided entry into practice prepares the individual student for the roles and realities of their profession. You do your nursing peers and profession a great service by participating with the faculty at Lane Community College to provide this experience for a soon-to-be colleague. 

These CTA pages have been created to help you reflect, refresh and possibly relearn strategies to enhance student learning and reduce concerns regarding your role. It has been reorganized to address OCNE competencies and give situational specific information. 

The CTA information is divided into four sections:

  1. Integrative Practicum Guidelines

  2. Clinical Application of Teaching-Learning Theory

  3. Student Evaluation Process

  4. Forms
