Nursing problems are frequently derived from a source of concern or a gap in clinical practice or theory. The student should address a problem or issue related to supporting health, providing care, or interacting with a variety of providers and/or patients in order to complete the clinical practicum experience. Observing nursing care in a clinical setting and researching current issues related to nursing and the health care profession in a peer-reviewed journal are examples of problem-solving methods.
