Clinical Evaluation Tool

The purpose of the weekly clinical performance evaluation tool is to provide feedback about achievement of the
course outcomes and competencies and to assist the student to meet the standards of care for nurses in Oregon as
outlined in the Nurse Practice Act.
Explanation of Rating Scale:
(S) Satisfactory = Clinical performance is safe and student adequately demonstrates application of the nursing
process/clinical judgment, required skills, and expected synthesis of learning appropriate to level in the program.
Verified by direct instructor observation.
(NI) Needs Improvement = Indicates that additional learning and attention to detail is required for a particular
item or that the overall performance for the week is at a minimum level. The instructor will write an explanation of
the rating on the comments page.
(U) Unsatisfactory = Clinical performance is unsafe and inadequately demonstrates application of the nursing
process/clinical judgment model, required skills, and expected synthesis of learning appropriate to level in the
program. The instructor will write an explanation of the rating on the comments page.
(NA) Not applicable = Particular item does not apply to the clinical performance.
(NO) Not observed = Instructor did not observe or has no knowledge of the students performance of the activity.
Students with a grade of NI or U will be required to meet with their advisor and clinical instructor and discuss a plan
for change in their behavior before their next clinical experience.
Safety and legal/ethical concepts are considered critical to the profession and will be graded as NI or U if any
violation occurs.
If a student is assigned a U or NI for two weeks, the faculty will review the students clinical performance and
consider the options of either placing the student on probation or dismissing from the program.
In cases of potential failure, notification of the student by the instructor that she/he has been assigned a grade of U
or NI for one week constitutes proper warning of the grade status.
If a student is placed on probation and then receives a grade of U, the faculty will review the students
performance and determine whether or not the student will be dismissed from the program.

10/8/15: Jai Lee- The first week back to clinical after having all summer away from patient care and thinking
about all that it entails is very difficult. I am very mindful of that fact. So, given that, I think you had a
successful clinical day. Your demeanor with your patient was very good. Your care plan needs a bit of work:
Expand on the pathophysiology to include integration of your patients systemic issues, social issues, lab
values, comorbidities, medications, plan of care, etc Most interventions (medications, nursing care, etc)
lead to some action taking place (either bad or good), so evaluate how each of the multiple factors affecting
your patient might play a part in a potential cascading of events. Really look at the patient as a whole,
including everything inside & outside of the admission diagnosis/surgical intervention. For next week, we will be
bumping up to two patients, so start thinking about how to think like a nurse managing what you see in front
of you and what you might see due to what care/interventions the patient is getting. Keep in check with me to
make sure you are feeling like you understand what this means. Well done, and keep it up!

10/15/15: Another solid clinical for you. You do need to work on the casualness of your writing and spruce it up
a bit to be more scholarly with fewer abbreviations. Thatll come with practice. Your patient care was excellent,
as was your time management. You seemed to do quite well. Continue working on this. Some days will go better
than others, so get a plan now to manage your time effectively (using a nursing brain to jot pertinent pt info on,
planning your actions ahead of time for your patients, etc). You will be going to 4 patients by the time you are
in your practicum. So, get solid management practices down now. You are well on your way. You are displaying

JLCS

quite professional behavior and you successfully met all of the above outcomes for your clinical day. Well done.
Tracy Fawns, RN, MSN.Ed

10/22/15: Jai Lee- Well done today! You seemed to do well with two patients today. It is a continual process to
get your groove with managing the care of two patients. Some days, as you know, will just go better than
others. You always seem very calm and collected. I sensed that the pain management of your burn patient was
stressful for you. It is sometimes very emotional to see someone in pain and feel like there is not much you can
do. Remember to come to terms with your emotions and work through them so that you can take care of
yourself and well-being. This is so important as a nurse. Remember the self care assignment you did your first
term during nursing school? This is what that was all about to learn how to take good care of yourself and
work through the stress that every nurse faces. I know you know this and I think you do a very good job at this,
but it is helpful to have a reminder every once in awhile. Dont forget about yourself. Your care plans are
coming along very nicely! You successfully met all clinical outcomes for today, as noted above.

10/29/15: Another successful day for you. Your care plans are continuing to get better & better. Keep it up. Your

observed you doing, including checking the residual and using the new pump at the hospital. You did well with
this. This was a patient who was very ill and had a lot going on. Your time management went well with two
patients. You met all clinical and course outcomes/competencies for the day. Your care plan is improving weekly.
