Erin is developing as expected in this clinical. She takes great pride in the way she cares for her patients. She is eager to learn and seeks out
learning opportunities. Erin has also assisted other colleagues who were not confident with certain skills (e.g. dressing changes). She manages

progresses. She communicates well with the interdisciplinary team. Keep up the great work Erin
