Abstract:

Nurses who graduate from the associate degree program at Valencia College lack the skills needed for the current complex health care environment.  These new nurses are unable to translate the knowledge learned in the didactic environment to the clinical experience.  The faculty of Valencia College felt that using a student-run clinic would be an effective means of addressing the academic drift seen in the new nurse.  The student nurse could develop skill acquisition across the curriculum from a novice student nurse to the expert student nurse.  Similar hands-on programs have succeeded at the baccalaureate and graduate degree levels for nursing and in medicine, pharmacy, and physical therapy; therefore, the assumption was that a hands-on program might work at the associate degree level.  However, an analysis of the college’s finances and resources, according to the Health Resources and Services Administration (2013), program requirements determined a student clinic on campus was not a feasible option for Valencia College.  Student financial status did not meet the low or poverty income levels set by Health Resources and Services Administration for free clinic status and risk management coverage.  Therefore, while student-run clinics support active learning, regrettably financial pro forma excludes the use of Health Resources and Services Administrations free clinic status and risk management coverage.
