Introduction: Clinical training is the most important part of nursing education. Improvement of education quality requires continuous investigation of present conditions and identification of advantages and disadvantages. In this regard, opinions of instructors and students, as educational elements, may be effective in future plans.

Objectives: This study was performed with the goal of obtaining opinions of instructors and students for improving the level of clinical education and reflecting the outcome to educational authorities.

Material and Method: This cross-sectional study was performed on 117 students studying in the final year of their study and 22 faculty members of army nursing staff. The participants were selected through census sampling. The data collection tool was a self-made questionnaire. The validity confirmation and the reliability of available samples were approved and SPSS 16 software was used for data analysis.

Results: Significant differences were observed between the viewpoints of instructors and students, regarding education structure and the role of instructors in the field (P< 0.05). No significant relationship was observed between equipment and facility, and individual potency in the field.

Discussion and Conclusion: Although the viewpoints of instructors and students regarding the effect of field training for obtaining skills were positive, improvement in the quality of field clinical education requires consideration and attention of authorities. Increase of number of instructors in the field of training, establishment of regular sessions with students, attraction of cooperation of physicians and other staff of hospital for cooperation, supply of welfare facilities and equipment’s for clinical environment, review of tools and processes of clinical assessment may be helpful.

Keywords: Attitude, Clinical Planning, Field Education, Nursing Education, Viewpoint.
