Introduction: The setting in which nursing students receive practical experience and apply their academic knowledge in authentic healthcare situations is referred to as the clinical learning environment. Aim: To assess the level of satisfaction among nursing students regarding clinical learning environment.

A total of 250 participants were involved through convenient sampling, and the data was collected from the participants through an adopted questionnaire. Results: Most nursing students expressed positive sentiments about the clinical learning environment. Around 75% of participants agreed with a good working relationship with the preceptor. Conclusion: Overall, the data suggest that the clinical learning environment is satisfactory, and with targeted improvements, nursing schools can further enhance the overall learning experience and better prepare students for their future roles in patient care.
