I am a LVN Trach Nurse at my work. We have had a change of Respiratory Director. I came to the director to tell him about a new trach nurse that had started and addressed some concerns. The RT Director wants to make me a preceptor so that I can do skills validation on other trach nurses. Am I able to do skills evaluations for the other trach nurses? The RT Director is going to do a skills evaluation on me so that I will be able to do it for the other trach nurses. I'm confused because I thought that the RT Director would be the one to validate if a person is qualified to do trach nursing.
