Student Areas of Strength

1. I believe that I can successfully manage my time when assigned to 2 patients on a shift including assessments, charting and
meds when it was my turn.

2. I believe that I have successfully demonstrated my skills pertaining to dressing changes and sterile fields.

3. I believe a strength I have is that I am not afraid to ask questions not only to my instructor but the other nurses so that I can
fully understand and learn the most I can

Student Areas for Future Development

1. I believe I can further develop my patient teaching skills and sounding more confident. I can do this by making sure I
understand to the fullest degree what I am explaining and directing questions to those who know more.

2. I can further develop my confidence when assisting with ambulating patients for the first time in a shift. I can do this by
asking or reading in the chart how well the patient ambulates.

3. I can continue to develop my skills pertaining to thinking ahead and gathering all the supplies that I think I might need for a
dressing change as well as when I have a patient in isolation. This can help me manage my time better because I am going in
and out of the room less.
Clinical Instructor Comments (All areas marked as unsatisfactory must have a comment)

Professional Responsibility and Accountability –

 Marissa had performed very well throughout the semester. She had shown growth in her professionalism and her
accountability in all the nursing care she does. She displays initiative to provide nursing care. She has shown confidence in
certain nursing skills such as simple wound care, her head to toe assessments as well. She ensures that the care she provides is
safe. She also had been able to critically think and have an inquiring mind. Prior to asking questions, she first does her own
research and tries to understand the information and discusses with the instructor afterwards. For example, inquiring what
interventions if any, need to be done for a patient with abnormal hemoglobin. She had also shown her eagerness to learn or
witness new experiences such as a patient performing his own tracheostomy care. She had been able to perform different
nursing skills with little assistance. She first assesses the situation and thinks of the next action she needs to do and confirms it
with the instructor. For example, when addressing a leaking nephrostomy with a packing dressing in very close proximity to
the side, she was able to problem solve with minimal assistance and had successfully changed the dressing and at the same
time protected the peristomal skin by applying a clear film barrier around. She had also successfully changed a newly operated
foot wound dressing. She provides patient centered care and most importantly involves the patient in his/her care. Applies
nursing knowledge that is relevant to patients health conditions (ie, vascular surgeries, GI surgeries).

Therapeutic Relationships
 Marissa has been able to develop therapeutic relationships with her clients on a daily basis. She has continued to be respectful
of her patients and addresses them based on how they would like to be (ie, by first name). She has also maintained her
professional boundary and ensures that her “contract” with the patient ends at the end of her clinical shift. She had shown her
capacity to provide timely nursing care by being able to manager her time/workload. She’d also been accountable for her own
work and knows when she needs to ask for assistance especially when faced with a nursing skill that she is not familiar with.
 Ensures that she provides a safe environment for the patient. Nursing care is delivered in a safe manner. She minimizes the risk
of any harm to the patient in her actions such as ensuring that the bed is in the lowest possible position, assess pain and need to
void, and by ensuring that the patient’s personal belongings are within reach. She also ensures that when doing nursing skills
such as wound care, that she does so by following aseptic technique. She also performs proper hand hygiene at each of the 4
moments of hand hygiene. When administering medications, she ensures that she does her checks and follows the 10 rights of
med administration, as well as have a good understanding of the medications and its actions.
 She ensures patient privacy is respected by not mentioning patient’s name when in the hallways.

 Has proven that she is capable of being a leader in many ways. For example, she had shown her ability to supervise other peers
in performing skills that she is very competent in such as discontinuing an intravenous, a simple wound dressing change. She
has also shown that she is able to be a team-player by allowing herself to be open to criticism and opens herself to new
learning. She has been approachable and pleasant as reported by the staff nurse and at times, her patients.

Throughout the semester, Marissa had performed exceptionally well. She had met the expectations of the clinical
instructor and of the school. Marissa has shown that she is very passionate with nursing and it is reflected in her
practice. Although she is still a student nurse, she has shown that she is capable of working in an acute setting and
is able to adapt to rapid changing conditions. She will be a great asset in any field that she works in. I also believe
she has a very bright future in nursing and whatever she sets her mind to. Given the opportunity, if ever, she would
be a great student to take on for consolidation.
