I've been asked by a couple of former clinical students to write a letter of reference for them. I've never done this before. Anybody have any ideas on what to say? What is important to include?
Here is one for an exceptional student: She possessed superlative critical thinking abilities, way beyond the expected level for a first-semester clinical student.
She was also very caring, gentle, compassionate, conscientious, and professional at all times. She was enthusiastic, focused, eager to learn, displayed great initiative, and was an effective team player.
I have the excellent student, the satisfactory student and the "just barely getting by" student who is really trying but not doing so great. I have also been asked to write letters for students who have failed, that are looking to get a hospital-related job or an externship while they are waiting to repeat the course.
In these cases, I keep it very objective, what they have passed or completed in the program, and their clinical performance if they were satisfactory in clinical for me, but not theory. I will discuss their character caring, compassionate, good communicator, team player, etc. I also include anything 'special' they have done, projects, extra assignments, externships, class officer, etc Jan 26, '08 Occupation: If they do, I am honest and state I cannot write a reference for them.
If an employer contacts me concerning hiring a graduate who in my opinion had mediocre performance during clinicals, etc. The employer can read between the lines.

Fortunatley, I have not been asked to write a letter for someone who was that bad of a student yet.
But I have been asked to write letters for summer externships, where I felt the student really needed it, so I would, in the nicest way possible, that this student would benefit from the experience. I have also been involved in hiring many new grads for staff nurse positions.
So, I have read a lot of such letters. I've also written some letters.
As others have said, I can read between the lines. When I see words like "outstanding" and "exceptional," I know that this is a student that is significantly above average.
When I don't see those types of words, I don't get the same message. The types of things I am interested in knowing about include things like: Reliability and dependability 1.
Ability to learn quickly 2. No wimps need apply. Able to take constructive feedback that is critical of her performance -- A new nurse needs to be able to handle the fact that she will probably struggle in that first year and have a few problems to cope with. That can be very stressful for people used to being "the head of the class" and some get very defensive when you try to give them some guidance.
A pleasant temperament -- gets along well with all types of people and doesn't get upset easily.Humor from The New Yorker, including news satire by Andy Borowitz, funny cartoons and comics, Daily Shouts, and Shouts & Murmurs.
