Connecting Class & Clinical

Constructing nursing care plans can be a challenge to nursing students and is a required written assignment in all clinicals, especially in first semester. By collaborating with a colleague who is a primary clinical instructor, I have been able to introduce and incorporate this written work in the corresponding nursing theory course. Students get practice writing care plans and become familiar with the clinical paperwork in a more relaxed environment as this is for practice and not graded. In turn, students have made connections sooner and performed better at a sooner point in time than previous students.
