    Comments about Clinical Psychomotor Skills:

    I chose this tool to aid with assessments in the clinical work place, of poor performing new graduate Registered Nurses. The advantage was that the tools were the most recently used by faculties of Nursing and were not foreign to the new graduates. This aided with debriefing after assessments.
