Okay, I really need to vent about something. I just finished my Pediatrics clinical and really enjoyed it. I had a great clinical instructor, and had no problems with her. Until she gave me a 'B' in clinical. The reason: I need to be more assertive. Yes, yes, my paperwork is excellent, I am a caring person, hardworking, etc, but I need to be more assertive. She told one of my friends the same exact thing and she ended up with an 'A'. Huh?? Which leads me to my point......how the heck can you put a letter grade on clinical? Especially when you have 5 days on the actual floor and your instructor is with you maybe 30 minutes of that time. :angryfire Does anyone else get letter grades for clinical, and if so, what do you think about that?
