Purpose: This rubric analyzes the components of the electronic health record that students would utilize when

documenting the care of a patient during a simulated event.

Components: Each criterion contains performance criteria to demonstrate the critical thinking and clinical reasoning

utilized during a simulated patient care encounter. The performance criteria describe the traits that are linked to a level of

performance. There are four levels of performance as well as a “not applicable” column. The levels of performance

indicate the degree to which the student documented the events of the simulated patient care situation.

Using the Rubric:

• Students: Prior to the simulation experience, the students can use the rubric to prepare for the documentation

requirements associated with a simulated experience. The emphasis on thorough, systematic documentation of the

nursing care provided during the simulation will facilitate clinical reasoning and critical thinking development. The

student can utilize the rubric to perform a self-assessment of their documentation of the simulated events prior to

submitting their DocuCare assignment. The rubric provides transparency related to the expectations for

documentation and the grading of the student’s submitted work.

• Faculty: The simulation documentation is only graded in whole numbers. The minimum accepted score is an 80%.

The student will need to resubmit the simulation documentation if the total percentage is less than 80%. The

student receives one attempt to remediate and edit their documentation.
