Abstract

Purpose:To describe the development of a dual track offering for the Adult Health and Gerontology Nurse Practitioner (AGNP) Programs at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and share clinical evaluation tools used with nurse practitioner students in this curriculum.Data sources:Selected research and clinical articles.Conclusions:A variety of evaluation approaches are utilized in the AGNP student clinical performance evaluation. These incorporate the extended clinical practicum sequence for the dual track curriculum in addition to each individual program's objectives. Formative and summative evaluations include reflective logs, clinical documentation of patient encounters, preceptor evaluation, and faculty site visits. Self-evaluative skills of the student and quality faculty feedback are two additional integral components that facilitate learning outcomes in the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective learning domains.Implications for practice:The summary of evaluation tools presented here is an example of how the AGNP Programs at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing effectively measure student progress in a curriculum model for dual track enrollment.
