This article describes the development and evaluation of an online clinical supervision resource. Technology-based learning is on the increase and is viewed as an excellent resource that offers flexibility to managers, educators and students. However, by creating a more flexible approach to training, nurses may feel under pressure to conduct and complete this training outside of their normal working hours. This article reports on the findings and explores the issues surrounding implementing an online training programme for registered nurses.
