Helping nurses to become effective and confident as primary nurses involves developing their interpersonal skills, sharpening their decision-making and nurturing their creativity.
In our action research study, we found that traditional methods of ward teaching did not help to promote this kind of professional growth.
We therefore developed, tested and refined three distinct strategies for clinical supervision which specifically aimed to foster more thoughtful and more sensitive nursing practice.
Very importantly, we found that these approaches to supervision were feasible and practical to use in a busy hospital ward..
In this paper, we describe the three supervision strategies, using a clinical story to illustrate what each demands from the supervisor and what it offers the nurse under supervision.
We also suggest ways in which expert nurses can be helped to become effective clinical supervisors.
