I taught college anatomy and phys, and microbiology for many years prior to nursing, so teaching is something I am passionate about. I made a career change as I've always been interested in nursing and I've been an rn a couple years now. I recently picked up a job teaching a short clinical to lpn students at a local Ltc facility to move towards my goal of teaching again. So far I feel I advocate well for the students. I have them rotate through the facility and follow wound care, dialysis, speech, etc. Each student also spends time with me on the floor. I work aggressively to find the opportunities. My issue is I find it difficult sometimes to know what is appropriate for students to do, and feeling comfortable doing things in a facility I am not an employee of. For instance a patient needed his picc dressing changed. I feel comfortable doing this at my own hospital, but I dont know the policies and procedures here. Lpns actually cant even do this, so is it appropriate for me to do it with them as I am not employed by this facility? Should students be doing certain skills with a facility nurse, or all with me? Basic things like passing meds, giving basic injections, foleys, I don't hesitate. But i leave at times feeling nervous that i overstep my boundaries of what I should be doing. I dont know the facility procedures for so many of these things, so I guess I get a bit nervous. Any advice would be appreciated!
