Clinical Evaluation
At the beginning of each nursing course, students will receive a copy of the Clinical Evaluation Tool appropriate
to that course, to inform them of the criteria used for evaluation.

At the end of each clinical rotation students meet with their clinical instructor for the purpose of evaluating their
clinical performance as stated in the evaluation tool. Students are asked to participate in self-evaluation at this
time. Clinical performance is recorded as pass or fail.

A satisfactory quality point average must be maintained in accordance with the College Policies as outlined in the catalogue. A minimum grade of 78 (C) must be achieved in all nursing courses to continue in the Nurse Education Program. NURS101, NURS203 and NURS204 are prerequisites to NURS301. NURS301 is prerequisite to NURS302 and NURS303.
