Appendix D – Clinical Hour Tracking

Appendix D. 1. Pre Licensure Clinical Hours Calculator.
Pre-licensure students are required to document clinical hours on their individual course hour logs and submit to their course faculty at the end of each semester. You will be directed by your lead faculty on documentation of any simulated hours. Students must also keep track of their cumulative clinical hours via the clinical hour calculator. This document is shared with the Academic advisor each semester to ensure that the student is on track and will have enough clinical hours to sit for their RN boards.

Example of the Clinical Hours Calculator shown here. Full document is located on the BSN Students page of Sakai, under “Resources”.

Appendix D. 2. MSN & Post-Licensure Clinical Hours Documentation
MSN and Post-Licensure ELMSN students are required to document clinical hours on their individual course hour logs and submit to their course faculty at the end of each semester along with any other required clinical evaluation documents.

Appendix D. 3. APRN and DNP Clinical Hour Documentation
APRN DNP certificate and degree students will enter all clinical hours into the electronic clinical documentation system Typhon ®. Documentation includes clinical site, preceptor, number of hours, patient demographics, diagnostic codes, procedures, and other information in order to demonstrate range of patient encounter experiences. No personally identifiable information will be entered. Simulation, such as OSCE activities, i-human or other simulated experiences will be entered into the system under “Simulated Clinic” “Fictitious Provider” so that the hours will be tracked. Telehealth activities count as regular clinical hours and should be annotated as such. Clinical tracking data will be submitted with all other clinical documents at the end of each semester.
