Adjunct, Nursing Lab

Department: Nursing Department

Position Summary:
The Adjunct, Nursing Lab promotes student learning about specific clinical tasks through visual and kinesthetic modalities. Instructors not only teach the task but the rationale behind the task and emphasize safety points. Adjunct, Nursing Lab will also assist with simulations, tutoring, remediation, medication calculation, clinical referrals and Nursing Care Plan assistance.

The Adjunct, Nursing Lab divide students into small groups to practice a procedure or provide individual supervised practices. This involves practicing on other students when appropriate, for example, when students are learning to take vital signs. Students also practice on mannequins, for example, when they are learning the process for urinary catheterization. Students may also have the opportunity to practice on specially built clinical simulation devices. The Adjunct, Nursing Lab gives feedback as needed. In addition to helping them practice, this process also helps them build confidence in their hands-on nursing skills.

After students learn specific clinical skills, the Adjunct, Nursing Lab will assess them while they perform a return demonstration (a demonstration of that skill). The Adjunct, Nursing Lab may be required to check off their demonstration against specific criteria (Skills Checklist) and use equipment to assess their skills. For example, in a vital signs return demonstration one might use a dual headed stethoscope to ensure that the instructor and the student are hearing the same blood pressure sounds.

The skills lab grade is pass/fail based on successful demonstration of the assigned skills for the course.
