Clinical placements are a source of stress and anxiety for nursing students, especially in the Emergency Department (ED). This explanatory sequential mixed methods study aimed to identify and explore these concerns and to develop, implement and evaluate an online learning resource to assist with preparedness. Four key areas were identified: the ED clinical environment, care of patients in the ED, clinical skills; and professional issues. These provided a platform for the creation of the www.edareyouprepared.com website. While this online learning resource is primarily designed for nursing students, it may also be of benefit to other healthcare students.
