Performance Enhancement Scheme
Academic Excellence is first priority key performance area for faculty & students. One of the measurable criteria of academic excellence is 100% success along with distinctions & university ranks. Academic rehabilitation activities include departmental review of academic performance in Parent teacher meeting, to identify weaker students & monitor their progress and also design & implement individual remedial actions. High performers based on their First formative assessment scores are selected to be a part of privileged batch. These students are provided with additional privileges such as access to faculty, departmental library along with tailor made paper setting & one to one feedback sessions throughout the year. All students of academic rehabilitation program have passed in first attempt with some students even scoring distinctions. Majority (95%-100%) students of privilege batches have achieved distinctions with some university ranks.
Clinical Competency Assurance
The competence of graduating nursing students is an important issue in health care as it is related to professional standards, patient safety & the quality of nursing care. Clinical Competency Assurance coordinators of various classes prepare yearly competency assurance calendar in discussion with Class coordinators, HODs & Principal. Clinical Competency Assurance sessions are mainly carried through micro skills development, viewing of procedure videos & provision of added time for handling complex equipments. To enhance their clinical skills with sophisticated instruments they have given exposure in advanced medical technology labs at Covedien. At the end of session, supervisor & peer evaluation is carried out with the help of standardized checklists. Students verbalized satisfaction as they get added time for hands-on experience in laboratories.
In order to develop & demonstrate skill competency the students are given exposure to clinical field of various specialties. Ratio of 1:3 with preceptor: preceptee is maintained. Mentoring is done with adequate supervision of specialized experts in the respective clinical field. Feedback from students & teachers evaluation is done through practical exam.
Walk with Scholars
Having recognised the fact that the best preparation for making a living comes through learning the arts of reading carefully, writing clearly and persuasively, reasoning quantitatively and analytically, evaluating evidence effectively and thinking critically, the programme introduces the idea of Walk with a Scholar. It is a novel and flagship initiative where in the students get to experience the first hand knowledge experts from various fields. It is a personal enhancement strategy through which an expert facilitates the development of student by sharing known resources, expertise, values, skills, perspectives, attitudes and proficiencies. It allows the learner to build skills and knowledge while attaining goals for career development. Its target is to develop certain generic skills, non-technical competencies, attitudes and behaviours that contribute to a person's sense of self and personal well-being.
