PN 102B - Practical Nursing 2 Lab
On campus lab and community clinical experiences will be planned by the faculty to meet specific competencies and benchmarks. These experiences will take place in the nursing lab and long-term care (LTC) facilities. Focus is on laboratory and clinical implementation of theory and nursing skills related to assessments, communicating with and caring for individuals with chronic illnesses, diagnostic labs (EKG, obtaining cultures, urinalysis, and visual acuity). Demonstration of interventions; surgical asepsis, wound care, parenteral medication administration (IM, SQ, & ID), enteral (via tubes through the oral, nasogastric, or surgical routes) medication administration, oxygen administration, respiratory care, urinary catheter insertion and care, nasogastric feeding and ostomy care. Continued clinical foci will be total patient care, collecting assessment data, documentation, using the nursing process to implement patient care, and medication administration. The nursing program assumes that acquisition of skill competencies is an ongoing process which requires student motivation and frequent faculty evaluation. Skills taught during this course which will require formal check off in lab prior to patient care will include surgical asepsis, wound care, parenteral medication administration (IM, SQ and ID), and urinary catheterization. These and other previously demonstrated nursing psychomotor skills must be successfully demonstrated and incorporated into the delivery of nursing care by the end of the term.
