Nursing students can complete nursing operations in their actual clinical activities with the aid of the laboratory function, which is essential for clinical learning and practice. This study intends to ascertain the relationship between laboratory skill performance and actual clinical performance among College of Nursing student at the University of Cebu Lapu-Lapu and Mandaue throughout their on-the-job training program. The findings of this study revealed that section (A) students need to do better in their laboratory skills exercises while the majority of Section (B) only obtained a Satisfactory rating despite doing well. However, both sections were rated Very Satisfactory on their actual clinical duties. The findings further revealed that section (A) has a positive correlation between laboratory and clinical performance, while section (B) has no significant association. The study revealed significant differences between section (A) and (B) laboratory performances while no difference in both clinical performances. The study concludes that even though there is a positive correlation between laboratory and clinical performance, students still need to understand how to effectively carry out their clinical responsibilities regardless of how well they perform on laboratory skill exercises. Even some did not perform well in the lab, they still did a good job when performing their actual clinical duties, which is why this study considers personal, emotional, and behavioral abilities in addition to laboratory functions as additional predictors for nurses' actual clinical performance during their on-the-job training program.
