Clinic II & III Rotation

Purpose

The Clinic II & III Rotations are designed to allow students to perform treatment modalities with the critical care patient. The students will attend adult ICU clinic rotation on Monday through Thursday from 6:30am to 3:00pm. Students assigned to NICU or PICU clinic rotation will follow the same schedule, and add Fridays from 6:30am to 10:30am.

Procedures to Perform

The students have demonstrated competency in the lab and will be expected to gain experience on the following procedures:

  • Artificial Airway Cuff Management
  • Extubation
  • In Line Small Volume Nebulizer
  • Inline suctioning
  • Noninvasive Ventilator Setup
  • Adult Ventilator Setup
  • Adult Ventilator Check
  • Adult Weaning Parameters
  • Neonate Ventilator Setup
  • Neonate Ventilator Check
  • Manual Ventilation During Transport

All procedures must be performed with supervision until the student demonstrates competency at a clinical site.

Clinical Competencies

Students must complete Data Arc competencies on all procedures performed during the Clinic II/III rotation. The purpose of the competency is to verify the students’ ability to comprehend, apply and evaluate clinical information including the ability to demonstrate technical proficiency in the skill necessary. Each competency follows the same format: equipment and patient preparation, patient evaluation, implementation of procedure, follow-up, demonstrates knowledge of fundamental concepts, and clinical competency performance criteria. As a clinical instructor, you may be asked to complete a competency for the student. This involves a review of the competency prior to the process, a summative evaluation (satisfactory, minor unsatisfactory or major unsatisfactory), signature, facility and date. The list of competencies to be completed is the same as the list of procedures the student will perform during the Clinic II/III rotation.

Clinic II/III Objectives

The clinic objectives follow the detailed content outline for the NBRC exams are intended to review concepts and promote a deeper understanding of patient data evaluation, equipment manipulation and therapeutic procedures. Rose State faculty and Clinical Instructors will verify concepts on the clinic objectives. The Clinic II/III Objectives will include the following:

  • ABG Sampling Technique and Analysis
  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
  • Critical Care Monitoring
