Nursing Update: Module  - Nursing Systems

Clinical Experience 2 Self-Evaluation

Self-Evaluation Guide—Nursing Update Outcomes, Module F

Conditions: These outcomes are demonstrated most fully in Clinical Experience 2, in which you will carry out nursing practice for one client each day for a two-week period. Working with clients who vary in health problems, age, and gender, you will give care for half a day and then return home to make up a care plan based on your assessment.

Criteria: You are expected to function at a level appropriate to a conscientious student who is building on Modules A to F, the Program Manual, and a previous clinical experience that focusses on assessment. For example, you are now expected to assess the client in the course of giving half a day of care in a systematic way. You should be able to achieve all the listed outcomes with some assistance.
