Please look for the specific course in which you are proctoring students.
You will find a list of the course outcomes and clinical expectations for the course. If at any time you have any questions about your preceptor role, the role of the student, or any concerns regarding the student and their behavior - please do not hesitate to contact the course faculty or the program director.
Review the Clinical Evaluation Tools. After completion of the clinical hours with the student, please complete the student clinical evaluation forms and submit to the program coordinator. Your feedback is vital to a true evaluation of the learning experience for the student.
Course - Basic Medical Surgical - Nursing 150
Course - Psychiatric/Mental Health - Nursing 206
Course - Women's Health and Pediatrics - Nursing 205
Course - Advanced Medical-Surgical/Leadership - Nursing 215
Clinical Objectives for Acute Care and Clinical Leadership (these objectives involve direct patient care)
Clinical Objectives for Leadership - Shadowing a Nurse Manager (these objectives do NOT involve direct patient care)
The same evaluation tools are used in every course. Preceptors and faculty perform evaluations of students completing clinical hours using the criteria below.
Critical Behaviors - Please Review. The critical behaviors contain 7 categories with expectations listed in each category that the student must be able to Satisfactorily complete/exhibit. The behaviors begin in fundamentals "with guidance" and as the student progresses more and more independence is expected. The chart shows the comparison between each level of our program and the progression of expectations. The final evaluation you will be asked to submit from your perspective after working with the student will be based on these critical behaviors.
