The mean for this measure was 6.02 years. 40.4% of the subjcts had been in clinical teaching for more than 15 years with a mean of 11.7 years. 46.4% had been in theoretical teaching for more than 15 years the mean being 11.4 years. The majority of clinical teachers (74.8%) supervised a group of 10 or more female nursing students, and 43,4% supervised a group of 10 or more male students. The faculty members, most experienced problems were those related to the evaluation tool (55.2%), the least complaint (36%) was evaluation in relation to certain personal characteristics of the nursing students. The k2-statistical test showed a significant correlation between evaluation problems and the students sex (p < 0.05). the k2 test also showed a significant correlation between the faculty problems and their being a part-time, master degree student (p<0.05).
