    A clinical placement evaluation form for undergraduate nursing students was developed to address the need for evaluating success in clinical teaching support and provide a feedback loop to the University, clinical educators and clinical venues. A 21-item, with five domains, (orientation, clinical educator/teacher, ward staff and environment, clinical hurdles, and university) Clinical Evaluation Form (CEF) was developed. The form was live tested with 178 year 1 and 2 undergraduate nursing students. The CEF scale was reliable (alpha=0.90) and has good face and content validity approved by an expert panel. Further research is recommended to validate the CEF for use multi-professionally and across all year levels.
