Additionally, students must bring pens, a pocket calculator, NANDA-I handbook, and a current drug handbook. Secure locations for personal items cannot be guaranteed at the clinical sites. Personal items and items of value should not be brought into the hospital.
Clinical Facility Information
Clinical site locations consist of acute care hospitals across the United States. Students will care for patients across the lifespan on medical/surgical units in the hospital setting. Availability of clinical site locations subject to change.
Students are scheduled for clinical experiences and are required to travel to the clinical site during the assigned clinical weekend. Students are responsible for their own transportation and all expenses related to travel to the clinical site. Students attend one clinical weekend (Friday evening (2 hours), Saturday (12-hour day), and Sunday (12-hour day). Clinical weekends occur during weeks 4 and 6 of the term.
Preparing for Pre-Clinical Conference
When enrolled in NUR 290, students are required to virtually participate with the instructor and student cohort group for a one-hour synchronous pre-clinical conference via zoom at the instructor’s established date and time. The dates and times of the pre-clinical conference are shared by the clinical faculty during the first week of the course. Attendance at the pre-clinical conference is mandatory.
The Clinical Experience
Clinical performance will be evaluated by the clinical instructor and the grade will be submitted in the classroom by the end of the week following the student’s clinical experience. Clinical performance is evaluated based on criteria in the Clinical Evaluation Rubric.
If an extenuating circumstance prevents attendance at clinical, the student must contact the clinical instructor and provide written documentation to support the extenuating circumstance. Students with extenuating circumstances who miss clinical will only have one opportunity to make up the clinical at a designated time/date. Examples of extenuating circumstances include but are not limited to: illness, death in the family, or natural disaster. Additional credentialing information for the clinical site may be required to attend the clinical make-up. Failure to make up for missed clinical will result in an unsatisfactory score for the clinical practicum, and thus result in a failure for the course.
Post-clinical conferences occur in the week following the student’s clinical weekend. Post-clinical conference occurs asynchronously with the instructor and student cohort group. Students are required to submit their Post- Clinical Assignments in the designated classroom area in the week following clinical for a timely evaluation by the clinical faculty. Participation in the post-clinical conference is mandatory.
Synchronous Virtual Laboratory Session
Students will engage in one faculty-facilitated synchronous virtual laboratory session during the term. The synchronous virtual lab occurs with the course instructor and student group via zoom for approximately 1.5 hours in duration. Dates and times of the synchronous virtual laboratory sessions are shared by the instructor during the first week of the course.

School of Nursing Expectations
End-of-Program Student Learning outcomes (EPSLOs) represent the expectations we have in the School of Nursing for our graduates.
EPSLO attainment is gradually built through completion of the program curricula. You will attain deeper levels of knowledge related to each EPSLO as you progress through the program curricula. To demonstrate this, each Course Level Student Learning Outcome (SLO) builds toward achievement of the graduate level EPSLO.
Within each course, module outcomes (MOs) build toward achievement of Course Level Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs), which build toward achievement of the End-of-Program Student Learning Outcomes (EPSLOs). The connection and progression of MOs to SLOs to EPSLOs is found on the “Outcomes” page in the course.
