Collaborative learning in practice (CLIP) is an alternative model for supporting student nurses in placement that is underpinned by the principles of coaching Lobo et al (2014). It was first introduced to the UK from Amsterdam and has been successfully introduced to hospital environments (Harvey and Uren 2019) and mental health services (Hirdle et al 2019). There is a lack of evidence on how effective it is in a private nursing home environment. This paper reports on how it was successfully introduced in a large independent care home with nursing in the south of England specialising in dementia care.
