Student Areas of Strength

1. One of my strengths that has developed over this semester is time management. I am able to prioritize tasks and get
them done and charted in a timely manner, while being flexible with unforeseen circumstances.

2. I am confident in my abilities to complete dressing changes. I am able to remove old dressings and assess the incision
site. Clean the incision and apply a new dressing, then document.

3. I am confident reading MARs and doing my checks, and the six rights of medication administration. I am confident
administering OP, SubCut, and transdermal medications to my patients. I am able to recognize when medications should
be withheld (if patient was hypotensive at AM assessment, I would consult with primary nurse about holding
medications such as Morphine).

Student Areas for Future Development

1. My narrative charting has developed very well over this semester, however I think that I still need more practice when it
comes to having a flow while communicating key findings.

2. I sometimes have a hard time giving report before going for break or leaving for the day. I tend to either give too much
detail or not enough. As the semester progressed I become better at share important detail rather then everything I had
done in the last two hours with my primary nurse.

NURSING 3020 Clinical Evaluation

3. Another aspect I can improve in is accepting help from my peers. Some times when offered help I say “no it’s okay”,
because I feel confident in what I am doing. However, while I’m still learning and the help is available I should learn to
take it. One example is when one of my class mates asked me if I wanted helping changing bed sheets, I denied. Then ten
minutes later I was looking for someone to help me because I wasn’t able to roll the patient on my own.
