Purpose of Performance Evaluations-1 A performance evaluation is the process of determining how well the nursing student does that which is required. The purpose is not to blame or shame students.
The Questions to be Addressed with the Performance Evaluation Are: (1) Are you providing safe and effective care? (2) What grade did you earn? (3) Should you be promoted to the next level?
Purpose of Performance Evaluations-2 The clinical objectives and specific daily objectives of the course are used as standards to evaluate performance. Performance evaluations are based on standards and objective criteria.

Constructive Criticism-1 It provided you believe in respecting others’ rights to their opinions. The criticism received is valuable and helpful, and requires changing behaviors. The valuable and helpful criticism is termed constructive criticism.
Constructive Criticism-2 Constructive criticism is based on lack of performance of specific behavioral objectives. Its intent is not to shame or blame on a personal level. Specifically, the intent of constructive criticism from your nursing faculty is to give you feedback on your performance and to help you grow into your role as a professional nurse
Carrying out Responsibilities and Showing Initiative The fastest way to be dismissed from clinical and possibly even from the nursing program is to jeopardize patient safety. Performance appraisals are also used to decide if a student should be dismissed.
Dismissal for Unacceptable Clinical Behavior Policy Examples of unacceptable clinical behavior include, but are not limited to: Refusal to care for an assigned patient based on patient characteristics such as race, culture, religious beliefs, or diagnosis
Clinical Evaluations There are links between performance evaluation, professional growth and development, and the rewards of providing excellent care. Faculty and students give feedback to each other in order to evaluate the student’s performance, professional growth, and development. The focus is on behaviors and skills.
Clinical Evaluations: Formative Summative
Formative Evaluations Start out each term by reviewing specific clinical objectives that you will need to meet in order to complete the course. It is very important for you to be aware of what is expected of you. Then, on a weekly formative basis, you and your faculty will jointly select experiences to meet those objectives.
Summative Evaluations Each clinical course also entails summative evaluations. Usually at midterm and at the end of the term.
Basic principles of receiving an evaluation 1. View all your constructive criticism feedback as having been given with helpful intent. 2. Listen to your faculty’s perspective and avoid excuses. 3. Ask for clarification and ask for examples of the inappropriate behavior. 4. Check with your clinical faculty for mutual understanding. 5. Ask for help and support in the areas of future growth.
Making Mistakes Keep in mind that everyone makes mistakes because no one is perfect Honesty and integrity are paramount to safe and effective nursing care. A student coveting up mistakes is acting unethically because it is dishonest Don’t beat yourself up about mistakes publicly or privately. It is unhealthy to engage in self-recrimination
Summary You alone must take responsibility for your own development You must seek out learning experiences to develop yourself in ways that support the achievement of outstanding nursing care
