    No need to be snobby. But really, what did you learn in school? Insulin is one of the first thing we learned and did. You check the sugar, find the sliding scale, figure out when they need to eat or if they already did and give the shot or hold as ordered.

    You are expected to know basic clinical skills like injections but if you have any questions, you can always ask your clinical supervisor about it. They are expected to pay for training/seminars/skill fairs for more difficult things like NPWT (wound vac) or PleurX, but it should take less than 5 minutes to teach even a new grad how to give an insulin injection.
