Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette
Wiper blade keeps going off the window on the passenger side
There is no adjustment on this you likely have a worn wiper arm transmission and the extra play causes the arm to travel to far.

You can replace the nut with a locking style nut. Your local hardware store should be able to provide you with one.
You can also purchace a small tube of "lock-tight" (brand name) that you apply to the threads then tighten the nut. Once the lock tight has dried, the nut will not come loose.

I had the same problem with my 99 Silhouette...after they put in a new windshield wiper kept going over the side of the window and tearing the blades up....ended up that the wiper arm was out of adjustment ....they came back and readjusted and it was perfect

Did you try bending the metal arm going to the wiper blade so there is enough pressure to make the blade contact the window better. I just did one two days ago and if im reading what what you are saying right its is the same problem and it fixed it

when the wipers are off make sure the driver and passenger wipers are at same level on windshield
you can adjust them so they don't go off the edge or hit the bottom.
if they are hitting off the edge and hitting the bottom as well you need to check the linkage since it may be worn out.

Turn your wipers off, using the stalk on the left side of your steering column. Turn your ignition off and remove the key.
Pull the wiper blade up to lift it to the service position. Pull the front part of the blade down to position it at an angle.
Pull back the lock pin on the center part of the wiper blade (where it connects to the wiper arm). This unlocks the blade from the wiper arm.
Grasp the blade on each side and pull it down (away from the extended wiper arm) to release it from the "U" clip.
Repeat the process for the other wiper blade, if desired. Removing the driver's side and passenger's side wiper blade is the same.
Install the new wiper blade. Open the lock pin on the new blade, and then insert it into the wiper arm "U" clip. Close the lock pin and lower the wiper blade to its normal position.

Fig. 2: Mount the wiper blade/arm as shown-1994-96 Pick-ups
When installing the arms, the at-rest position of the blades should be determined before pushing the arm onto the pivot. For Dakota trucks, the tip of the driver's side blade should be 0.51-2.63 in. (13-67mm) above the cowl panel and the passenger's side blade should be 0.94-3.06 in. (24-78mm) above the cowl panel. For 1989-93 Pick-ups and Ramchargers, the driver's side blade should be 1.84 in. (47mm) above the windshield weatherstripping at the heel of the blade; the passenger's side blade should be 2.24 in. (57mm) above the weatherstripping. For 1994-96 Pick-ups, the wiper motor must be in the PARK position and the wiper blade should be about 0.85 in. (22mm) from the upper edge of the black-out areas at the base of the windshield.
Hope this helps to solve it.
