at our clinical you get "S"."NS" and now they have added "NI". we all start 100points you need 80 to pass. if you are late 2 points for each 15 minutes, care plans
, leaving the floor etc. they have also added we are not aloud to leave the floor we are assigned (lucky for us cafeteria is on the same floor) and no going outside for ANY reason.
I bust my butt at clinic along with about 3 others - I have 3 patients assigned to me and one other student has 3 the rest have 2. we hit the floor at 3:30, get report, give 1600- 2100 meds, do assessments and vitals and any treatments.
now heres the thing we have one classmate who takes FOREVER to do anything. takes one hour to an assessment on 1 patient and 45 minutes to pass meds on 1 patient, i kid you not!!!! he/she walks around so unsure of what he/she is doing. but he/she always gets an "S". does anybody else have this situation at their site?
I really have nothing against this student, but I believe a "NI" should be given so they realize in the real world this amount of time just won't work its not fair to them they need to know the truth. sometime it seems they will pass anybody as long as the school gets the money.
