Performance of Technical Skills
Clinical experience provides an opportunity for you to develop your nursing skills and knowledge. While you are encouraged to seek learning experiences, you must not perform any procedure for which you do not have adequate preparation.
You may perform certain special nursing procedures under direct supervision of an instructor or RN/RPN who is certified for the procedure if you have been provided with theoretical background. You may not perform procedures which are a transfer of medical function. Designation of procedures as special nursing procedures or transfer of medical function may vary from area to area. Consult with your instructor.
Regardless of where you have your clinical experience, you must not perform any procedure for which you do not have adequate preparation.
