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 of clinical performance 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, if applicable. 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. Mid-rotation evaluation conferences will be made available to each student. Final evaluation conferences with faculty members are mandatory and will be held during the last week of each clinical rotation. A student may request additional conferences at any time by contacting the faculty member.
Assignment feedback will be provided within 14 days.
Six quizzes will be administered for the didactic/lab portion of the course.
Students must achieve an average grade of 74 or higher in order to achieve a satisfactory course grade.
Assigned IHI modules must be completed with a minimum of 74% on each module’s post test to achieve a satisfactory course grade. Modules may be retaken if the post test grade is less than 74%.
