In recent times of ambiguity in education, nurse researchers believed that the multifaceted role of nurse educators should be re-examined.

Furthermore the concept of clinical credibility is ill defined. The main purpose of this study is to explore educational experience of nurse educators concerning the notion of clinical credibility. A descriptive design was employed using questionnaires to collect data. Respondents comprised 134 practical and theoretical nurse educators from 19 different nursing schools globally who completed an online questionnaire.
