Every state handles Nursing Assistant education a little differently, and likewise, every state has different guidelines for practicing Nursing Assistants. Because of that, we learn new things every time we meet with a school from another state or region.
- As an instructor, open the patient's chart that you'll be using in the classroom or simulation lab and go straight to your orders.
- Remove any orders like x-rays or medications that do not apply to your students.
- Add any additional orders for daily care items that are not already on the patients (for example, checking vital signs, ambulating patient and bathing).
- When the student logs in and reviews the Patient Summary, they will only see orders that apply to them, creating a "Care Plan" for CNAs.
