Student Final Summary with Strategies for Continued Growth


This semester,I am learning and getting experienced in giving oral and IV medication and learning new communication skills in hospital . Because of
the diverse population of patients in hospital I am getting much more exposure to patients of different cultures and hence learning to respect and
understand values and beliefs of different cultures..In the initial weeks i was not fully prepared to give medications , but with practice and with
guidance of our instructor, i could develop that confidence to give medications at right time and in organized manner.I learned to do IV medications
skill. I am getting more chances to apply my critical thinking. I am learning every week something new. Learned to make a care plan which is client
centered plan of care. It helps us to use our knowledge, skill and judgement skills . I get different experience with different patients every week.I am
getting more efficient in bed baths and client personal care. I want to practice more and more for giving IV medications, so that i can be perfect in
giving them by week 14. I worked on my time management and prioritizing the actions by making my to do's list for whole day in my clinical after
taking report which helped me a lot in organising my tasks and prioritising them as per the requirement. My another weakness where i want to
improve is documentation and i am working by charting the progress notes on rough sheet and showing it to my instructor. I will keep on watching
videos this semester to learn more and more and do my full readings.Need to learn skills for body mechanics and shifting patient comfortably without
hurting my back and without ant discomfort to patient,I will watch online videos for learning them.

Teacher Final Summary with Strategies for Continued Growth


Navjyoti is very knowledgeable and functions well in all aspects of patient care. She has successfully met most of the goals and objectives that she
planned to achieve in the beginning of the semester. For example, she was able to administer oral and subcutaneous medications independently by
week 14, and was able to administer IV medication with minimal assistance from her instructor. She sometimes struggled with the programming of the
IV pump when hanging a secondary line, but for the most part was able to prime the line and prepared and mixed the medication after having her
instructor double checking to ensure that she had the right medication for the right patient at the right time. As well, she keeps the primary nurse up to
date about the patients at all times, and she ensures that she gives a thorough report to her peers when going for break. She demonstrated the ability
to care for two patients and completed their care in a timely manner. Her documentation skills have improved as well, but there is still room for further
development. She was informed that her critical thinking, problem solving and decision making skills, physical assessment skills will develop overtime
as she continues to review and watch the nursing videos provided for her by the college. She was encouraged as well to review the document
published by the CNO on documentation standards.
