Well I graduated as an ADN able to do most of the basic skills, thankfully. Because no one was going to teach me in the real world these days. But I guess if you'd have to choose, you might want a graduate nurse who had never done a foley insertion but knew the steps by heart, the reasons you might need a foley inserted, the possible effects of said foley, what to look for before, after and during the procedure, the reason why sterile technique was so crucial, how often the foley should be changed, etc. A skill like foley insertion can be learned easily by most people with enough repetition and a good instructor. But if you don't understand all the other things that go along with the skill and can't consider the implications critically, you are missing the main point of nursing. That is what I think they are attempting to test with the NCLEX. Whether they are doing so successfully or not is up for debate.
