Nurse interns (NIs) in nursing education require a welcoming clinical learning environment (CLE) in order to successfully integrate theory and practice. This might be achieved by looking at CLE from their perspective. The goal of this study was to determine how satisfied nursing interns were with their clinical learning setting. A retrospective cross-sectional approach was utilized in this study, with a purposeful sample of NIs from the Baccalaureate nursing program. Data was obtained from 110 individuals using a valid and reliable structured questionnaire, and analysis was performed using the SPSS statistical software for social sciences version 23. The level of significance was fixed at 0.05. To assess the satisfaction of Nurse Interns with the Clinical Learning Environment, the CLE was rated as satisfactory by 81.81 percent of those polled. The internship program was rated excellent or good by 91.5 percent of NIs. NIs were happy with the CLE's learning context (Mean = 59.97/75 with a standard variation of 13.36) as well as the information and skills obtained through the CLE (Mean = 24.43/30 with a standard deviation of 5.65). Using ANOVA, there was a significant difference between satisfaction with the learning setting and overall evaluation of the internship program (F-test). The CLE was well received by the majority of NIs, who evaluated their internship program as excellent or good. Awareness and evaluation of factors influencing nurse intern satisfaction are critical for good theory-to-practice integration. The study's data and results may be utilized to determine the elements influencing nurse interns' satisfaction with CLE and to propose suggestions for training clinical preceptors and nursing administration personnel to contribute to a pleasant clinical learning environment.
