Working through CIs as opposed to working with nursing students Thereness Staff development Thats Me Student Selection
Nursing students apply to join the DEU: Letter of intent GPA Faculty support Once selected, students are then assigned to their CI in pairs Assignments The
unit structure determines the assignment The ratio nurse-to-patient-tostudent Scheduling managing credit hours vs. shift hours Accountability Student
Like Nurse and Clinical Instructor Accountability all nurses, the shift does not end at 7pm: Everything must be done before the student nurse leaves the unit
Clinical Instructors have to give Clinical Faculty Coordinator their evaluations of the students on a weekly basis Clinical Instructor CI Incentives Students were invited to conferences & presented at
rounds Balancing CIs workload outside of the DEU St. Josephs RN Stars Satisfied Customers I believe this is the way all clinical rotations should be set up. I felt like I was going
to work, not clinical. The DEU is a more independent and focused experience Thank You Panel Discussion
