Use of Mini-CEX Tool to Assess Clinical Competence in Family Nurse Practitioner Students Using Undergraduate Students as Patients and Doctoral Students as Evaluators
The ability to objectively evaluate clinical skills in nurse practitioner students is paramount to ensure competency in independent practice. Faculty are challenged to directly observe and evaluate students in the clinical setting because the facility may be located hours away. Therefore, faculty must rely on preceptors who may not be adequately prepared to evaluate students. The authors’ aim was to create a learning activity to address this issue and to include students from all nursing program levels.
