The knowledge gained from the clinical experience.
The first clinical day when I got to actually help a patient
Team work. We constantly were having to work as a team. I learned so much from my group. Dr.B was extremely active in teaching us and encouraging us to rely on one another.

Nothing on Dr B, but more that I wish clinical size was smaller, maybe 6 people as I think 10 is excessive. Dr B was running around constantly to ensure we got opportunities to do procedures but there are just too many of us vs her

Intellectual teacher and cares about her students.
Dr B did a great job and I wish I could take her again next sem!
Such a caring and knowledgeable professor that really goes out of her way for her students. Does everything she can to make sure her students gain the most out of clinicals. A great clinical professor.
She was a great professor. She always showed us a lesson to be learned in any situation which was really great.

i will remember her caring mind and what she taught us she is one of best teacher that i have so far
the confidence I gained from this course to complete assessments and tasks as a nursing student in clinical settings.
The professional behaviors she instilled in us.
The way Dr. Ben-Sefer always went over big concepts, areas for improvement, and good experiences during our debrief meetings after the clinical sessions
The amount that she pushed me to do things I did not think I could do. The experiences I was exposed to helped me understand the concepts taught in class.
The confidence I gained from it.

her teaching style was little more pushing but it was really helpful to learn and practice our skills it was really great opportunity that i had her in my first year of nursing school
No suggestions, this course was really helpful and Dr. B's teaching style really helped me.
N/A. I appreciated her teaching style and the in-depth feedback she gave us for all of our assignments, time management sheets, and procedures in the clinical setting.
None
I can't think of anything.

Dr. B. went above and beyond for her clinical group every session. She made sure we each got to perform necessary skills when they were available, and I could see that she worked very hard to make that happen. We did a debrief after every clinical that really brought tremendous learning as we were able to learn from each other's experiences and talk about things we could change or improve upon. We always had a good amount of work to accomplish at each clinical session, we our time was well spent. Most importantly, Dr. B. really supported us individually and gave us encouragement and constructive criticism, which is invaluable.
there are some unexpected moments such as patients doesn't want us to visit , but she gave us another quest that we would learn not wasting our time in clinical sometimes, it was challenging but great experience that i could learn and study with her thank you so much Dr. B i will miss you!!
Dr. B's confidence and trust in her students helped us as students to build our self-esteem. I felt that I was given the opportunity to do tasks in a clinical setting that helped me improve my nursing skills.
Dr. Ben-Sefer was an excellent clinical instructor for this course. She always pushed us to do more than we expected to do in each clinical session and we walked out more than satisfied with the way each clinical session went. She was very thorough with her teaching and abode by all ethical principles during our sessions. I am truly glad to have had started the nursing program with Dr. Ben-Sefer as my clinical instructor.
Keep pushing your students past their own perceived limits. I grew so much from your class and the experiences you provided for me. I am glad that you are always open to discuss any questions I have about the content or the clinical experience.
Dr. B. truly cares about her students. She is an awesome clinical instructor. She goes above and beyond to make sure students are learning and getting a good experience.

None, Dr. Ben-Sefer is the best clinical instructor. She was recommended by previous semesters and I strongly recommend her as well.
I have no suggestions for improvement for Dr. Ben-Sefer. She sets high standards for her students and pushes them to continue to improve their clinical skills.
I enjoyed having Dr. B as a professor because she was always had a positive energy and attitude. She was a fair grader and treated every student with respect. Although she may have seemed intimidating at first, when you got to know her she had a mother-like quality and it was clear that she cared about us.

22. What changes would you make in the clinical experiences?
None, Professor Ben-Sefer was always there to help us an guide us in the right direction. She provided us with alot of learning opportunities in the clinical setting.
None, clinical experiences ultimately depend on the location and what skills you are allowed to do while you are at your site at the appropriate time.
I would suggest to alternate a few clinical days to be longer so that we would be able to participate in feeding or dinner time with the residents at the clinical site.
None
Maybe a little more independence.
I enjoyed my clinical experience. I would change clinicals by having a longer break for transportation to the clinical sites. This could be accomplished by starting an hour later and going an hour longer.
none
23. Other comments:
I really liked how she forced us to do the work independently and within the team. It will surely help me a lot in many ways as I progress in the program.
Professor Ben-Sefer is a great professor. She is very knowledgeable and approachable. She pushes her students to stay motivated and to learn.
Dr. B was extremely helpful this semester. She really pushes her students to do as much as they can and really take reaponsibility for their clinical learning. Even when she was away she made herself readily available for her students to communicate with her. I really appreciated her tenacity, persistance, and fairness as a clinical instructor.
Dr. Ben-Sefer really strives to give us the best learning experience possible. She sets various learning moments that I know many other clinical instructors had not provided for there groups like observing physical and occupational therapy, getting hands on training showering, changing briefs, using hoyer lifts, and ambulating..etc. She always makes sure the patients and us were always safe. She is an awesome instructor and any student would be lucky to have her, because I know I learned a great deal of knowledge from her.
I am so glad I chose Dr. Ben-Sefer as my clinical instructor. She genuinely cares for her students and wants them to succeed. She pushes you and that's a good thing because she knows how far you can get. She is a fair grader and is always available in case you need to talk to her. Overall, she is a great instructor for first semester nursing students.
Dr. Ben-Sefer is a great instructor. She provides a great number of learning opportunities for students during clinical. She encourages students to critically think for ourselves, and provides enough support when needed. She genuinely cares for her students and wants to do her best to help prepare them for N220.
Dr. Ben-Sefer keeps track of her group of students on an individual basis and is the best instructor out of the 5 available. She pushes her group for success. I have nothing negative to say about her
None.
She was a great clinical instructor that provided me with the experience and knowledge to improve myself and be in complete preparation for the next semester.
I enjoyed having Dr. Ben-Sefer as a clinical instructor, and I learned so many life lessons.
Dr.B is very nice and helpful. She's always prepared for clinical and she makes sure our time is well spent.

20. What changes would you make in the clinical experiences?
Offer additional clinical sites?
A little more hand on experience with patients to practice the skills that we learned
I would not go back to Maunalani as a clinical location. I believe many of the staff were bothered with our presence and did not allow us to practice/improve our skills. Dr. B was great and she made sure to get us as much experience as the clinical site would allow. Dr. B found us the best staff to follow and allowed us to rotate so we would each get to take part in the wonderful learning experience.
I think it would be good if students were told what they are suppose to do prior to clinical so that preparations can be made.
None. She did the best she could with getting us hands on work during clinicals.
changes necessary
I dont think Maunalani is a good place to have clinicals. By the time we get there, The patients are all asleep and dont want to be bothered. I also felt like we did not get as much hands on experience as my other classmates since at maunalani they dont really let students do much other than watch. Maybe if clinicals were in the morning when the residents are more active we might be able to do more things.
its good the way it is
None, Dr.B made sure our clinical experience was conducive to our learning and skills in class.

Dr. B is a great teacher. She puts a lot of pressure on her students to be there best but she also gives us tremendous support when needed. At times when I was nervous about tasks she was encouraging and helpful but always allowed me to find my own way. She was ALWAYS positive and gave each student fair treatment. I would recommend her as a clinical instructor to future N210 students.
Dr. Ben-Sefer is a great instructor! She shared practical knowledge and asked questions to help us put the pieces together in clinical.
I wish there were more caring instructors in the University system like Dr.B.
