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.
