Final Clinical Evaluation Your Preceptor will evaluate your clinical performance

Advanced practice nurses are lifelong learners, partly due to necessity and partly due to mindset. Naturally, nurses need to stay abreast of advances in the healthcare field, as well as the introduction of new technology, processes, and regulations. But nurses also need to cultivate a growth mindset and see setbacks and challenges as opportunities to develop professionally. Take a moment to reflect on what you have learned and how you have grown as a result of the experiences at your practicum site and within this course.

This week, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate that growth in your Final Clinical Evaluation. You must also finish entering all clinical hours and patient encounters for this practicum.

Assignment 1: Clinical Hour and Patient Logs

Clinical Hour Log
For this course, all practicum activity hours are logged within the Meditrek system. Hours completed must be logged in Meditrek within 48 hours of completion in order to be counted.
You may only log hours with Preceptors that are approved in Meditrek. Students with catalog years before Spring 2018 must complete a minimum of 576 hours of supervised clinical experience (144 hours in each practicum course). Students with catalog years beginning Spring 2018 must complete a minimum of 640 hours of supervised clinical experience (160 hours in each practicum course).

Each log entry must be linked with an individual practicum Learning Objective or a graduate Program Objective. You should track your hours in Meditrek as they are completed.

Your clinical hour log must include the following:

Clinical Faculty
Total Time (for the day)
Notes/Comments (including the objective to which the log entry is aligned)

Patient Log

Throughout this course, you will also keep a log of patient encounters using Meditrek. You must record at least 80 encounters with patients by the end of this practicum (40 children/adolescents and 40 adult/older adult).

The patient log must include the following:

Clinical Faculty
Patient Number
Client Information
Visit Information
Practice Management
Treatment Plan and Notes: You must include a brief summary/synopsis of the patient visit. This does not need to be a SOAP note, however the note needs to be sufficient to remember your patient encounter.

By Day 7 of Week 10

Record your clinical hours and patient encounters in Meditrek. All clinical hours and patient encounters for this practicum must be entered by Day 7 of this week.

Assignment 2: Final Clinical Evaluation and Student Feedback

For this Assignment, your Preceptor will assess your clinical skills in a Final Evaluation. Following your Final Evaluation, your Clinical Faculty and Preceptor will meet privately to discuss your results and feedback. Once you receive your feedback, compare your Preceptor’s evaluation with your self-evaluation to better understand your clinical performance.

By Day 7 of Week 10

Your Preceptor will be required to complete their Final Clinical Evaluation and you will be required to complete your Student Feedback.

Ensure that both you and your Preceptor have submitted the required online evaluations in the Meditrek system. Be sure you have completed all fields in the log and ask your Preceptor to verify your completed hours in Meditrek. If feedback is not received, you will receive an Incomplete (I) as a grade. There is nothing to submit in the classroom for this assignment; all components are completed in Meditrek.

What’s Coming Up in Week 11?
