Now that charting is electronic, a lot of Nursing students skip straight from not knowing information to being presented with checklists and drop-down menus. In the past students had to understand, remember and recall information just to complete a chart. Now, it's become an exercise in choosing the best answer from the options.

Teaching idea: Spelling for Nursing and Allied Health Students

It may sound silly, but how many instructors have gotten charts/assignments/etc. from Nursing and Allied Health students that are just plain unreadable? The student may understand everything there is to know about cleaning wounds, taking precautions with patients on blood thinners and how to properly bathe an elderly patient, but they still can't spell ostomy or Coumadin or sputum.

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.

How to use an Academic EHR during clinical rotations - Actionable solutions

In our last post, we wrote about why using an Academic EHR during clinical rotations can be extremely useful for both students and instructors. If you've already decided that your school is going to get students charting on an Academic EHR while visiting clinical sites, we're here to give you a few concrete examples of how that can be done. First, we suggest making sure your system is web-based so students can actively chart during their visit on a tablet or computer that's available. Depending on your clinical site, they may allow students to chart on their own tablet or laptop as well. If that's not possible, students can always enter charting after their visit.

Academic EHRs and Clinical Rotations - Why they fit together so well

One of the most common complaints we hear from Healtcare and Nursing Instructors is that students are not allowed to use the EHR/EMR systems at their clinical sites. On one hand this makes sense - having Nursing Students create a permanent record of patient information in an electronic charting system is scary. One charting mistake can open the clinical site up to all sorts of liability issues.

When we talk to Simulation Lab Coordinators and Instructors, we've come across all sorts of setups. We've met High-Fidelity Sim Lab Coordinators, Nursing Instructors who use the old school, low-tech mannequins and instructors of new programs who are using a combination of virtual, paper and volunteer patients. Not only have we talked to each type of school, but we have all varieties of instructors and schools using EHR Tutor in effective, interesting ways. So just because your school does things a little bit different, doesn't mean your students can't benefit from the latest technology. Here's how:
