administration of a series of written examinations in the major didactic subject areas.
Each examination question is multiple-choice in nature and is keyed to the lesson plan
CLINICAL ACHIEVEMENT EVALUATION
The student's achievement in clinical performance training will be graded
pass/fail, based upon the performance of a series of tasks related to the different clinical
subject areas. At the beginning of each clinical rotation, the student will receive a list of
objectives for that particular clinical area. The student must successfully accomplish
those objectives during the time allotted for that clinical rotation. The clinical areas
include the following:
a. Medical-surgical ward.
b. Intensive care unit.
c. Recovery room.
f. Newborn nursery.
In addition to passing the clinical and didactic portions of the Practical Nurse
Course, the student is required to meet height and weight standards in accordance with
regulation. A diagnostic Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) will be conducted during
Phase I. The APFT for record will be conducted near the end of Phase III. Students
who fail to pass the APFT for record will not graduate and will not receive a diploma.
