FNP Student Evaluation

Thank you for serving as a clinical preceptor for Gonzaga University School of Nursing and Human Physiology. We recognize and appreciate your vital role in shaping exceptional future nurse practitioners.

Please use this form to evaluate a clinical practice experience of 20 hours or longer. Students are required to obtain feedback from each preceptor with whom they work. Please record your evaluation and review it with the student.

Gonzaga University faculty review this form to learn about the level of student performance in clinical rotations, to monitor the standards of performance and to ensure that every student who graduates from GU’s Family Nurse Practitioner or Adult Geriatric Nurse Practitioner Options will be able to perform safely, as an entry level nurse practitioner.

The student is expected to demonstrate:

  • Developing independence in collecting subjective and objective data, generating diagnostic hypotheses, and implementing appropriate management plans.
  • Clinical judgments that integrate clinical and research based knowledge with individualized knowledge of patients and their family.
**The form is successfully submitted when completed in one sitting and a banner will pop up after the successful submission to let you know that it has been received.**
