Abstract

Background: This study was conducted to identify unmet needs through qualitative research on students
who have experienced clinical practice and alternative practice that are suddenly limited to COVID-19
situations.
Method: Qualitative research using focus group interviews involved five junior students with untact or
limited clinical practice experience.
Finding: The unmet needs of nursing students were analyzed as four categories based on “lack of various
media and visual materials” and “need to strengthen self-directed learning capabilities.”
Conclusion: The results of this study suggested that nursing students who experienced untact or limited
clinical practice experience are demanding education that utilizes various media and enhances self-directed
learning, despite suffering from a lack of direct field experience and burden on tasks. Therefore, education
programs should be developed to meet these needs.
