Courses with clinical nursing practice
For those courses with a clinical nursing practice component, the evaluation of clinical performance is on a “PASS/FAIL” basis.
To pass the course, the student must pass both the clinical and classroom components. Normally students will receive a verbal mid-term evaluation and a written final evaluation of their clinical performance from their clinical instructor.
Students who are identified at the mid-term point as being at risk of failing clinical practice, will receive a written mid-term evaluation. Students whose performance is unsatisfactory at any time after the midpoint of the clinical experience, will also be informed in writing.
