Introduction: Improvement of clinical education quality requires continuous assessment of the current situation, identifying the strengths and improving the weaknesses through getting feedback from instructors and students . This study aimed to compare the viewpoints of clinical instructors and nursing and midwifery students about clinical education.
Methods: This is a descriptive, cross-sectional study  which was conducted in 2016. Thirty tree clinical instructors and 361 nursing and midwifery students in Islamic Azad University, Falavarjan Branch were selected through census method. Data was collected using two-part self- reported questionnaire including demographic information and clinical education status' questionnaire in five dimensions (educational goals and plans, instructor's performance, feedback and interaction to student in clinical field, educational environment, supervision and evaluation). Data was analyzed with independent t-test, ANOVA and Pearson correlation coefficient using SPSS/21 software.
Results: The clinical education status in the viewpoints of instructors was in high level (23.63 ± 11.77) and in the viewpoints of students was in moderate level (50.03 ± 7.61). There was a significant difference between students and instructors' viewpoints in the all dimensions of clinical education (P<0.05).  Instructors with higher education level assessed the level of supervision and evaluation of clinical education significantly lower (P <0.05).
Conclusions: The instructors, compared to the students evaluated clinical education status more suitable. It seems that the instructors had more positive approach to training than the students. In contrast, in the viewpoints of students, the problems of clinical environment were more tangible and so they have reported weak assessment of their clinical training. According to present study, providing the suitable "clinical educational environment" and improving the "interaction to student in clinical field" for solving the problems of clinical education is necessary.
