CLINICAL SCHEDULE
Seminar schedule: see Sakai website. Students will need approximately 8 hours of clinical each week.
All students will complete a minimum of 96 clinical hours (including Seminars).
Sakai is the course management system that you will use for this course. Sakai is accessed by using your
Gatorlink account name and password at http://lss.at.ufl.edu. There are several tutorials and student help
links on the E-Learning login site. If you have technical questions call the UF Computer Help Desk at 352392-HELP or send email to [email protected] It is important that you regularly check your Gatorlink
account email for College and University wide information and the course E-Learning site for
announcements and notifications.
You will use Typhon Nurse Practitioner Student Tracking System to record clinical encounters and
clinical hours. For general questions regarding Typhon contact Dr. Gleason at 352-284-2123 or
[email protected] If you have technical problems regarding Typhon call College of Nursing IT Support at
352-273-6429 or send email to [email protected]
Graduate students are required to submit a schedule of planned clinical practice dates and times to
Typhon prior to beginning the clinical rotation. Any changes to the schedule (dates and times) must be
submitted to Typhon before the change is planned to occur. Clinical hours accrued without prior
knowledge of the faculty member will not be counted toward the total number of clinical hours
required for the course.
ACCOMMODATIONS DUE TO DISABILITY
Each semester, students are responsible for requesting a memorandum from the Disability Resource Center
to notify faculty of their requested individual accommodations. This should be done at the start of the
semester.
STUDENT HANDBOOK
Students are to refer to the College of Nursing Student Handbook for information about College of
Nursing student policies, honor code, and professional behavior. Of particular importance for this course
are the sections on appearance in clinical practice areas, personal liability insurance, and student safety.
TEACHING METHODS
Supervision of clinical practice, individual conferences and seminar
LEARNING ACTIVITIES
Supervised clinical practice, individual conferences and seminar participation
EVALUATION
Minimum Required Clinical Practice Hours: 96 hours
Clinical experience will be evaluated through faculty observation, verbal communication with the student,
written work, and agency staff reports using a College of Nursing Clinical Evaluation Form. Faculty
reserve the right to alter clinical experiences, including removal from client care areas, of any student to
maintain patient safety and to provide instructional experiences to support student learning.
Evaluation will be based on achievement of course and program objectives using a College of Nursing
Clinical Evaluation Form. All areas are to be rated. A rating of Satisfactory represents satisfactory
performance and a rating of Unsatisfactory represents unsatisfactory performance. The student must
achieve a rating of Satisfactory in each area by completion of the semester in order to achieve a
passing grade for the course. A rating of less than satisfactory in any of the areas at semester end will
constitute an Unsatisfactory course grade.
The faculty member will hold evaluation conferences with the student and clinical preceptor at each site
visit. The faculty member will document or summarize each conference on the Clinical Evaluation Form or
Incidental Advisement Record. This summary will be signed by the faculty member and student. Midrotation evaluation conferences will be made available to each student. Final evaluation conferences
with the faculty member are mandatory and will be held during the last weeks of each clinical rotation.
A student may request additional conferences at any time by contacting the clinical faculty.
Students enrolled in advanced practice courses with a clinical component will use Clinical Experience
Form F to document clinical experiences including hours, practice location and preceptor for their
personal records. Students also assess their learning experience using Clinical Site Assessment Form G.
Completed Form G is collected electronically and submitted to the Coordinator of Clinical Resources at
the College. At the end of the clinical experience the student completes a self-evaluation and the faculty
member completes a student evaluation using the College of Nursing Clinical Evaluation Form.
