I am finishing up my sophomore year in a BSN program. One of the classes this semester was a lab of physical examination and health assessment. It was a lot of fun, but we are being taught outside of (what I understand as) the RN scope of practice. We were doing full-on physical examinations and mock diagnosises. We had videos to watch to reinforce the material, and it is all MDs doing the videos. As an RN will I be actually determining diaphragmatic excursion? Percussing for splenic enlargement? Bronchophony and egophony? We are being taught head to toe assessment which I have only had my doctor do at a full physical, never an RN. Is this the norm at nursing schools?
