Such preparation shouldinclude:- reading the text material, viewing video tapes, listening to audiotapes and practicing newprocedures in preparation for test out. Students will be divided into study group. Students are to obtain their ownran partner within the group to facilitate hand-on practice. It is the responsibility of each group to contact laboratorycoordinator to schedule a practice session in the laboratory. Laboratory attendance is mandatory but, in theevent of an emergency which may require an absence, any missed laboratory practice must be re-scheduled with theinstructor and made up within one week.Students are to report to the nursing lab on the assigned day promptly at their designated lab time. Students areexpected to have read the assigned readings and be prepared for lab experience.Procedure checklists for these skills will be posted on the web site. Students are expected to spend time in the schoollab in addition to scheduled lab hours. It is the students responsibility to be ready for lab quizzes and test- outs.No student should come to lab unprepared for the days content.Students must demonstrate their ability to perform Lab Skills prior to entering the clinical area. Students who fail askill test on the first attempt will be referred for remediation and schedule second chance. Failure on the secondattempt will result in a failure and such student will be dropped from clinical rotation. As a result, the student will berequired to drop the entire course. It is the responsibility of student to set up a time with the lab coordinator andprovide a lab partner as needed for lab practice. 1
    • Laboratory GuidelinesThe Nursing Skills Lab is an extension of your clinical and academic programs. Therefore, all the same requirementsfor maintaining professional behaviors inboth Clinical and Academic settings apply:- • No food or drink – may cause damage to equipment • No children - risk of injury from equipment • No cell phones in testing or student work areas -Can be very distracting to students • Students should wear their student ID at all times while in the lab and follow the recommended dress code of the school • Students are strongly encouraged to practice skills for demonstration exams during scheduled lab and open lab times.Suggestion for Effective learning • Start a Skills Lab Notebook at the beginning of your course – Organize all skills lab related information (i.e. Procedure sheets, notes) • Review all Skills Lab Policies and Procedures before coming for lab session • Participate effectively in all group discussion • Organize your schedule to have adequate time to practice lab skill • Attend all lab session and demonstration time • Submit your assignment on timeThe Nursing Computer LabThe nursing computer lab allows students to view computer assisted instruction programs and videos aswell as previous Power Point lectures. Students often use this time to reinforce information at their own pace 2
