students with their clinical learning environments. Results: The study results showed that the sub domain
of supervisory relationship (90.62%) was having highest mean percentage and relationship between student,
staff and teacher sub domain has lowest mean percentage (84.38%). The nursing students evaluated the sub
domain of relationship between student, staff and teacher (22.07%) as ‘need to improve’ andintegration
