1 VN: Objective 01 EXPECTED CLINICAL ROTATION PERFORMANCE GUIDELINES Clinical rotation expected performances are reflected in the clinical objectives. Clinical objectives are posted by instructor at each clinical facility. Student is responsible for knowing objectives. Clinical days are 8 hours. If the student arrives more then 15 minutes late they will be sent home and marked absent. In addition, if the student misses more then 15 minutes of the clinical day (i.e. leaves early) they will also be marked absent. All missed time must be made up. If the student is going to be absent, the instructor must be notified at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled class time. If the instructor is not notified it will be considered a no call/no show. If the student is unable to contact the instructor, they must notify the DON or Clinical Coordinator. Telling a classmate is unacceptable. Within one week of being absent, arrangements for make-up time must be made. Skills lab hours must be made up before attending clinicals at the assigned facilities. In addition, all (theory and clinical) make-up time must be completed by the end of each term to continue to the next term. Contact Clinical Coordinator to make arrangements for makeup time. Make-up assignments may include traveling to other campuses or clinical facilities greater then 35 miles of distance. Pre conference will provide the student/instructor time to review assignment. Post conference will reflect what has occurred during the day. The instructor may also add other items to review or test on during post conference. All students must complete head to toe assessments on each patient that is being cared for. Documentation on clinical assignment forms is mandatory. Documentation at each facility will vary. Instructions will be given at each facility orientation. Students are responsible for knowing all medications that their patients are receiving even if they are not administering them. A medication card will be due on every medication, vitamin and supplement unless indicated by instructor. The patient research form, clinical assignment packet, medication card, and medical diagnosis cards are due weekly on day two of clinical. If student is absent on day two, assignment must be submitted to DON/Clinical Coordinator no later then Friday of that same week. Grooming and uniform guidelines must be followed at all times, refer to nursing handbook for details. Appearance will be evaluated daily. Students may be sent home for inappropriate grooming and/or for not wearing student badge. Students are expected to arrive at clinical prepared and may be sent home if unprepared. Clinical evaluations will be completed by the instructor and reviewed with the student every four weeks. The evaluation will then be reviewed by the Clinical Coordinator/Director of Nursing and a copy of the evaluation will be available for the student.
