  • Background: Examining nursing pedagogical strategies is important to assure that nursing students have opportunities to become knowledgeable and skilled clinicians. However, little is known about the nursing pedagogical strategy of using schools for pediatric practicum. The purpose of this review is to integrate the evidence regarding the use of schools as practicum sites for nursing students to obtain pediatric clinical experience. Method: Searches were conducted in three electronic databases resulting in 70 publications; eight publications met the inclusion criteria. Results: Five themes were identified using content analysis: description of practicum settings; level of education, number of students, clinical time and geographic region of the college; theoretical framework; nursing student activities and assignments; nursing student outcomes, evaluation of pediatric practicum experience, and school student health outcomes. Conclusion: Findings support the use of schools for pediatric practicums. This practicum broadens nursing students' knowledge of promoting health among well and chronically ill children.
