NURSING 3020 Clinical Evaluation

Clinical Evaluation Process Nursing 3020


The Mid-Term Evaluation will be completed by students at the mid-point of the clinical placement to assist students to take
inventory of their current development and assist them to make plans for future clinical practice. The student will use a
reflective process to help assess progress in meeting established program, year, and course objectives. The student will submit
an electronic copy of the Mid-Term Evaluation document to the clinical instructor prior to the formal mid-term student
evaluation. Because the document is to be completed electronically, the student and instructor can take as much space as
they need to provide appropriate evidence and feedback.

After receiving the students Mid-Term Evaluation, the clinical instructor will complete the comment section providing
feedback and evaluation of the students progress. The clinical instructor will provide suggestions for improvement. The
instructor will place a check in the S column if progress is satisfactory, and in the U column if progress is unsatisfactory. If
a student demonstrates unsatisfactory progress at mid-term, the student and instructor will develop a Learning Plan outlining
strategies in which the student will engage, along with clear expectations that must be met for the successful completion of
the course. The course professor may be involved in developing the learning plan.

The student and instructor should save and print a copy of the mid-term evaluation. Printed copies must be submitted to the
course professor within a week of completion.

At the end of the rotation, students will complete a Final Evaluation. Students will use a new copy of the evaluation template
to archive their achievements and areas for future development. The student will submit an electronic copy of their final
evaluation to the instructor; this will help the instructor complete an assessment of the student.

In order to complete the final evaluation, the clinical instructor will provide additional evidence by completing the comment
section, providing feedback and evaluating the students progress. The clinical instructor will collect evidence in the form of
the student self-assessment, comments of the health care team members, patient input, student submissions (including
portfolios) and observations. A summary of achievement as well as implications for future learning should be included in this

document. The attendance section and record of completed hours is to be filled in completely. The completed document is to
be printed, shared with the student and signed. The signed copy must be returned to the TFSON within 10 days.

The Year Lead, lab instructor, and/or course professor will assess the completion of the Learning Center Component, if

Students and instructors will complete both the mid-term and final clinical evaluation
documents electronically. An electronic copy of the completed (student and instructor) final
evaluation should be submitted to the course professor within 48 hours of the final evaluation
delivery. A printed and signed copy should follow within 10 days of the evaluation meeting.

Clinical Instructor Comments (All areas marked as unsatisfactory must have a comment)

Michaela is progressing through her clinical placement as expected except needs to demonstrate better critical thinking skills. I
would like to see her take more of an initiative with plan of care as we move forward. Again she is practicing safely by seeking
assistance but needs to demonstrate more initiative moving forward. She notes she does well to answer call bells and help

week. Assessments are improving as well as ability to document interventions and reassess. She has not been absent from
