George Mason University School of Nursing has tried a variety of off-the-shelf commercial tracking products to collect, manage and communicate data associated with student clinical rotations. The products were each eventually removed from use because they did not meet the specific needs of either the faculty or students. Mason has developed an Excel-based clinical tracking program that facilitates rapid and accurate communication of the clinical experience and provides the flexibility to adapt across academic programs–at no cost to the students. This article describes the “Student Excel!” journal that was developed by Mason, how it is used by the School of Nursing and Health Informatics Program, response from students, and future implications.
