    Failed Capstone clincial....

    My school require us to have our preceptor grade us weekly. In my signed logs, I have all 3 or 4's on scale of 4. In my last log of Capstone, I got 2's on everything. I was told about the foley incident ( first time doing it in a real patient and I never received any type of feedback. ) and patient communication ( I received 3 out of 4 for every log this Capstone). I hve all these logs saved to my computer and phone. 2. I understand that even though it was just flonase, it could have been fatal if it was another medication or if the patient had a reaction to it. The principle behind it was not obeying the 5 rights of admin. I felt bad afterwards because something so simple could have been prevented. Before That moment, my nurse told me " Go give patient 29 his meds". I literally gave him his meds which was Flonase intranasal for congestion. Afterwrds, my nurse told me she didn't literally mean it, she meant give him his home meds (Flonase) because he was going to be discharged in a couple of hours. That medication was on his cubby, not on inside the Pixus. As a student nurse, I was just following what my preceptor told me to do. Ideally, I understand a real nurse shouldn't do what I did (ex. a doctor ordering a bad medication, the nurse should question the doctor). But as a student, I was just doing what my superior told me....that is just what I'm coming from, I hope you guys understand. Another reason for suspicion ( I'm going to keep to myself in the appeal) is both my parents have experience with legal issues in the healthcare field. They told me she is just trying to cover her behind by painting me as an incompetent student who disobeyed her just incase that medication error comes back to haunt her. In my "Final Report" to my clinical faculty, my preceptor wrote that I told her after she confronted me " Student responded that "Patient is just a hospice patient" ". This is a blatant lie on my integrity. I was 50% sure about submitting an appeal, but after reading this, I am submitting it first thing tomorrow morning. I've spent hours reading this case and the appeals process in my school's website since we got off school earlier this week. Hopefully things come out good and the truth comes to light. Thank you to everyone on this thread for the advice and constructive criticism.

    thank you. I needed to hear this and make this my theme when giving my rationales explaining my case. Appreciate your input.

    Failed Capstone clincial....

    thank you so much. I am going to begin the appeals process after much thought. My faculty told me that appeals rarely go into the students favor, but I genuinely feel like I've been wronged. I honestly feel like my preceptor not being concise or truthful in my progress reports played a big role on this. In your professional opinion, do you think they will give me credit for this Capstone, or will they make me re-do it? I'm expecting the worst but hoping for the best at this point.

    Failed Capstone clincial....

    Hello, I'm a longtime lurker here and I need some major advice. Yesterday, I received the heartbreaking news that I had failed my clinical portion of my Capstone, and I won't be able to get my BSN until I take it again next Spring because that is how my school works. I'm feeling so lost right now. I was given the option to appeal, but my faculty told me, most of the time, it never goes towards the favor of students. I just thought I'd let you guys know my case and see if you guys think anything should be done. I was placed in a MedSurg clinical for my last semester. Basically, I felt I had a mean preceptor who wasn't there to teach me. The biggest reason that I feel they failed me was because of a Medication Error. My biggest concern was my preceptor didn't tell me I did anything wrong until 2 months into my clinical. I just found out she wrote that about me yesterday when I had my meeting with my professor - this event occurred in January. I don't know how I'm supposed to fix my mistakes........I'm just so sorry if I did anything wrong but I wasn't aware. My biggest issue is my preceptor graded all my weekly logs ( 4 or 5's on a scale of 5) good, but on the last week, gave me 1/2's and just overloaded me with everything I did wrong that semester. I just need advice if this is worth appealing. I'm feeling so lost and sad at the moment. I feel like I brought shame to me and my family and all. Thank you..
