Clinical coaching is one educational intervention that researchers have identified to help students achieve their clinical performance goals. However, in northwest Nigerian nursing schools, coaching services are not available. The current study used a quantitative, quasi-experimental design with pre-post-test approach. Four clinical instructors received training on the coaching package before providing coaching to the study group. Data was collected using clinical checklists before coaching and two months later. The coaching was provided to the study group for six weeks. The study compares nursing students' clinical performance before and after coaching. It also established relationship between academic stress and clinical performance.
