New Nursing Instructor and Clinical Resource Nurse Required Training
Clinical Day A and B
Clinical Day A Education 0800-1400 (If the instructor is not doing POC training w/ the students the instructor will stay until 1500 so they can attend POC training.)
Clinical Day B Education w/ Acute Care Educator 0900-1200
Current employee nurses do not need to go through Clinical Day A or Clinical Day B orientation.
New instructors who are not employees are required to go through Clinical Day A and Day B orientation.
Returning Instructors/Employee Clinical Resource Nurses do not need to go through Clinical Day A and B unless there has been a 1 year lapse in their position as many changes can happen in that time frame.
We prefer new and current employee nurse instructors attend Meditech training with their students. They will probably find it helpful to know what the students are learning so they know how to support them. This is also a chance to ensure they are familiar with cosigning for students.
Returning instructors probably do not need to attend but are encouraged to do so, if they wish.
Point of Care
We require an instructor be present with their students during the classes.
POC training needs to be completed by students and instructors annually.
Current employees will update this training as they take their assigned competencies for Kalispell Regional Healthcare.
Brand-new instructors will have to be assigned a number and attend the initial training with their group.
Current employees do NOT have to do Pyxis training as it will be completed as their assigned competencies. However, if they are new they need to check in with Renee to give her their instructor Meditech mnemonic.
Pyxis training is now done via modules in HealthStream. See the Meditech/Pyxis Training link on the main On-Site Instructor page.
Returning instructors need Pyxis training annually.
