                     HOW TO MAKE SURE YOU GET CREDIT FOR ALL YOUR
                   “NURSING LEARNING LAB” (NURSING 6, 7, 8, 9) ACTIVITIES:

Many activities meet the criteria for credit in the Nursing Learning Lab. These include, but are not limited
to, skills practice in LS207, working on computer-assisted instructional (CAI) programs, doing research
in the computer lab for nursing assignments, study groups in the lab, MLK-TLC and Digital Library and
viewing course related audiovisual materials in IMC/library. Students who complete approved Web-
based CAI such as softwarefornurses.com and EDGT.com from home may also receive credit for time
spent completing those programs. Students should include the time used to complete these programs
on the Learning Lab Credit Form (see attached) and attach a printout demonstrating completion of the
module. Special activities assigned by semester level faculty may be offered for Nursing Learning Lab
credit as well. These activities must be approved and verified by a full time semester level Nursing faculty
signature.


Students who use the RCC computer templates to work on care plans at home instead of the nursing lab
may receive a maximum of 4 hours credit per complete &/or major care plan (6 care plans per semester
maximum, for a total of 24 hours).


A minimum of 50% of the credit hours requested must be spent in skills practice (LS207 or simulation labs) or
CAI completion (MLK-TLC). If you are unsure if an activity is eligible for credit, please obtain authorization in
advance from full time faculty in your semester level. Students who submit a request for learning lab credit for out-
of-lab activities that exceed 50% of the required hours will only receive credit for the number of hours equal to 50%
required hours for those activities.



1.     Use of attendance terminals: The primary method of receiving credit for the Nursing Learning Lab
       is to log in and out using the attendance terminals located in the Digital library, Simulation lab, MLK-
       TLC and LS207. Whenever the terminals are functioning, students should use them to log their hours.
       *Please note: Students must log in and out in the same building. Logging in from one building and
       logging out in another one may result in the hours for that day being automatically deleted from the
       system.


     a) If the terminals are not functioning, a manual log notebook is available in LS207 and MLK-TLC.
        Students are responsible to complete the log, including name, student ID#, time in and time out.
        Request the manual logbook from the lab instructor.
     b) Incomplete or illegible information on the log will result in hours not being credited for Nursing 7.
     c) Students who forget to log in/out or have questions about accuracy of hours shown on attendance

                                                 -525-                                 VN(Hdbk) Unit 6-8:9/09
                                                                             Word Doc: How to Get Credit :7/08
       terminal should see the Nursing Education Resource Specialist for clarification or correction.




2.    Submitting Nursing Learning Lab credit form: For alternate approved hours completed outside of
      the learning lab area, students will be required to keep a record of their hours on the “Nursing Learning
      Lab credit form” (see attached). Completed forms must be submitted to the Nursing Education
      Resource Specialist no later than the last day of classes in the semester for which credit is sought.
      Again, incomplete or illegible information on the form will result in hours not being credited. Forms
      will not be accepted past the last day of class. Grades are calculated during finals week.




3.    The last day to submit requests for Nursing 7, 8, or 9 credit hours is the last day of classes before
      final exams start.




In completing the request for Learning Lab credit, students are expected to follow the Nursing Integrity
Policy found in the School of Nursing Student Handbook.

      MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION GUIDELINES: VOCATIONAL NURSING PROGRAM

GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATIONS
1.      The student is never to remove and sign out controlled substances without the instructor or staff nurse present. The
        student should not carry controlled substance key or have Pyxis code.

2.      The student is never to administer IV push medication without direct supervision.

3.      Policies guiding medication preparation and administration in the specialty nursing area (OB, Peds, Mental Health,
        ICU, ED or clinical agency) may vary from the following guidelines. Please follow the guidelines from the specific
        specialty area or clinical agency.

4.      The phrase direct supervision is defined as an instructor or a designated RN at the student’s side visually supervising
        their actions.

5.      A near-miss is any medication error that would have occurred if the instructor or licensed nurse had not intervened.

6.      Within 24 hours, part-time faculty are to report all medication errors to a full-time faculty in the semester.

7.      High-risk medications will be verified by two licensed nurses and the student will provide a third signature after
        administering the medication.

8.      All medication errors will be documented on a Progress Note and the EDMET tool. The full-time faculty will review
        and finalize the EDMET tool to ensure accuracy before the student signs.

9.      Near-misses will be treated as an actual medication error, requiring a Progress Note and EDMET tool.

10.     All medications will be verified by a licensed nurse prior to administration.

11.     Students will adhere to safe medication administration guidelines, including but not limited to the “rights” of
        medication administration.

Nursing 52
1.      Preparation of all medications will be directly supervised by an instructor.
2.      Administration of all medications will be directly supervised by an instructor.
3.      Students will not prepare or administer any medications until the Nursing 52 dosage calculation quiz is passed with
        100%.
Nursing 61 and 62
1.      Initially, the preparation of all medications will be directly supervised by the instructor. The student may eventually
        be permitted to prepare certain medications with direct supervision of a designated licensed nurse, but only after there
        is specific agreement between the student and the instructor that the student can prepare that medication safely without
        direct supervision of the instructor. Such agreement is for that one medication pass only. For each subsequent medication
        pass, a new agreement between the student and instructor must be reached.
2.      Initially, the administration of all oral medications will be directly supervised by an instructor. The student may eventually
        be permitted to administer certain oral medications without direct supervision of the instructor, but only after there is
        specific agreement between the student and the instructor that the student can administer that medication safely without
        direct supervision of the instructor. Such agreement is for that one medication pass only. For each subsequent medication
        pass, a new agreement between the student and instructor must be reached.
3.      Initially, the administration of all parenteral medications will be directly supervised by an instructor. The student may
        eventually be permitted to administer certain parenteral (IM, ID, SQ) medications with direct supervision of a designated
        licensed nurse, but only after there is specific agreement between the student and the instructor that the student can
        administer that medication safely without the instructor providing direct supervision. Such agreement is for that one
        medication pass only. For each subsequent medication pass, a new agreement between the student and instructor must
        be reached.
                                                       -537-                                          VN(Hdbk) Unit 6-8:9/09
                                                                                                             VN:14928:8/08
      4.   Nursing 62: The deadline for earning 100% on the Nursing 62 dosage calculation quiz is the end of the first clinical
           rotation. A student who does not meet this standard will be ineligible to administer medications until the 100% is
           earned.

NURSING 71: GUIDELINES FOR SAFETY IN ADMINISTERING TEAM MEDICATIONS

1.         The FIVE RIGHTS of administering medications will be followed in every situation of medication administration.
           Client safety and Joint Commission require two (2) types of client identification in order to ensure medications are
           administered to the correct client.
2.         Review the document entitled Guidelines for Administration of Medications. These guidelines are applicable in every
           instance of medication administration.
3.         All questions will be researched by the student and the action will then be clarified with the instructor.
4.         If the student is performing a function/action regarding administration of medications for the first time, the instructor
           must be called to observe.
5.         One student ONLY to pour medications from a medication cart at a time.
6.         Competency in following the FIVE RIGHTS of medication administration must be demonstrated by the student prior to
           administering team medications. This will be verified by the instructor through direct supervision and specific agreement
           regarding competence.
7.         The team medication administration experience is designed to provide the student with the opportunity to further develop
           independence and accountability in performing nursing actions. The student will demonstrate his/her acceptance of this
           responsibility by following the FIVE RIGHTS of medication administration with 100% accuracy.
8.         The instructor will make frequent checks to verify the student is adhering to the FIVE RIGHTS of medication
           administration.
9.         In any instance of noncompliance as demonstrated by not observing the FIVE RIGHTS of medication administration,
           the student will be counseled. If any further episode of noncompliance should occur, the student will be in jeopardy of
           being dropped from the program for unsafe nursing practice.
10.        If the nurse who is supervising the medication preparation/administration leaves the unit, stop preparing/administering
           the medications and notify the instructor immediately.
11.        A method of identifying the patient to ensure the drug(s) to be administered are for that patient must be developed. It is
           suggested that the MAR listing the drug(s) to be given be compared with the patient’s ID band.

            ROUNDING POLICY FOR DOSAGE & MEDICATION CALCULATIONS

OBJECTIVES:

To achieve maximum accuracy in administration of oral and parenteral medications and fluids.

To calculate an accurate measurable dose for administration.

GUIDING PRINCIPLE:

When calculating dosages, accuracy is maximized by rounding only once, at the end of the dosage
calculation.

MEASURABLE DOSE FOR ADMINISTRATION:

1.     Liquid oral medications and parenteral medications:

       a.     If the volume is greater than 1 ml (milliliter), use a syringe calibrated in tenths of
              milliliters. Round to the tenths place.

              1)      Round down if the digit in the hundredths place is less than five.
                      Example: 1.837 = 1.8

              2)      Round up if the digit in the hundredths place is five or higher.
                      Example: 1.674 = 1.7

       b.     If the volume is less than 1 ml (milliliter), use a syringe calibrated in hundredths (tuberculin
              syringe). Round to the hundredths place.

              1)      Round down if the digit in the thousandths place is less than five.
                      Example: 0.674 = 0.67

              2)      Round up if the digit in the thousandths place is five or higher.
                      Example: 0.837 = 0.84

2.     Calculating IV flow rates: All IV flow rates are rounded to the whole number.

       a.     Drops per minute: Round to the whole number according to above guidelines.

              1)      If the number in the tenth place is less than five, drop the digits after the decimal.
                      Example: 31.25 = 31 drops per minute

              2)      If the number in the tenth place is five or higher, round up the whole number by
                      one.
                      Example: 31.8 = 32 drops per minute

       b.

     c.    Milliliters per hour: Round to the whole number according to the above guidelines. If a
           pump is used that can be adjusted to tenths of a milliliter per hour (ml/hr) round according
           to agency/unit guidelines.

CALCULATING DOSAGE INSTEAD OF VOLUME: For example, milligrams, grams, mg/Kg/24 hrs,
mg/min, mcg/drop, etc.

1.   Round dosages to the closest hundredth.
     Example: 26.666666 mcg/drop = 26.67 mcg/drop

Milliequivalent (mEq)
Number of grams of solute dissolved in one ml of a normal solution. In common usage,
used to express the concentration of an electrolyte in a solution.
Unit(u)
Measures a drug in terms of its action, not its physical weight. Insulin, penicillin, and
heparin may be measured in International Units.
      1 unit (u) = 1000 milliunits (mu)
IV Drip Chambers: gtt/ml
Facilities and/or units use drip chambers with factors of 10, 15, 20, and 60 drops/ml.
The nurse must read the label on the drip chamber package to accurately determine the
drop factor. Microdrop = 60 gtt/ml.

INTRODUCTION

Nurses administer medications orally and by injection. In order to perform this function safely, it is
MANDATORY that the nurse possess certain basic arithmetic skills.

We highly recommend that you take this arithmetic review test as soon as possible. If there are any of these
arithmetic skills which you cannot perform, obtain a basic math text or math programmed instruction manual
to learn them.

An answer sheet is included on the last page so that you may check the accuracy of your responses.

             NURSING COMPUTER RESOURCES COMPUTER LAB GUIDELINES


The Nursing Computer Resources labs are available as part of Nursing 6,7, 8, & 9. The labs contain over
150 computer-assisted instructional (CAI) programs to assist in the learning process. The main computer
lab is in the Martin Luther King Jr. Teaching & Learning Center (MLK) on the 2nd floor. The 2nd floor
is shared with CIS. All PCs on the right side (MLK 220 & MLK 221) are reserved for nursing students.
A smaller nursing lab is located on the 3rd floor (MLK 304). MLK 304 is used for special sessions and
when the 2nd floor is not available. Computers in MLK run on Windows XP , contain CD-RW drives,
USB ports, 3 ½” drives, DVD players as well as Internet access. Most CAI programs are only accessible
in MLK. LS207 contains 3 PCs with MS Office and Internet access for student use in addition to 2
computerized IV simulators.

Use of the Nursing computer labs is governed by the Riverside Community College computer agreement
(see attached). The computers are to be used for nursing study and research only. Personal use for other
means, inappropriate use of Internet access, or purposefully changing/interfering with operations of
the computer systems will result in appropriate corrective actions, from restriction of use to potential
dismissal from the program.

CAI programs in the computer lab are stored on a network system. A few programs are accessible via
the Internet from home. Students will be given access codes and passwords for these programs. Sharing
these passwords with anyone except other RCC nursing students is strictly prohibited and will result
in appropriate corrective actions, from restriction of use, to potential dismissal from the program. These
programs are designed to facilitate critical thinking and decision- making processes, which are a vital
part of nursing. While all nursing students are encouraged to take basic computer courses to become
familiar with computers and software, prior experience is not necessary to operate most of these
programs.

Guidelines for use of computer resources:

1. Getting credit for hours: Students must log in and out using the attendance terminals when using
   computers for nursing work. Attendance terminals are located at the main 2nd floor desk in MLK, in
   LS207 and the digital library. Students must log in and out at the attendance terminal in the digital
   library when viewing nursing videos in the library. Lab hours are to be used for studying or performing
   lab activities in MLK, LS206, LS207 or the library. Students must sign in and out in the same building,
   or the computer will not log your attendance hours. During terminal downtime, ask the nursing
   instructor for the manual log to record your hours. Incomplete and/or illegible information on the
   manual log will result in not receiving credit for those hours in Nursing 7, and may result in failure to
   receive credit for the course. If you are enrolled in more than one nursing lab (Nursing 6, 7, 8, 9) the
   required number of hours for each course must be completed. The computer does not allow hours to
   be transferred if you drop one lab and add another. Please see the laboratory coordinator if hours need
   to be transferred. See document entitled: “how to make sure you get credit for all your nursing
   learning lab activities.”

   ***CITracker, the attendance system, does not automatically interface all hours with WebAdvisor. If
   your hours showing in WebAdvisor are different than what is displayed on the attendance terminal,
                                             -553-                             VN(Hdbk) Unit 6-8:9/09
                                                                        Word Doc: Comp Lab Guide: 6/09
   they will be updated at certain times during the semester. The hours displayed on the attendance
   terminal are always the most accurate.

2. Paper usage: Paper is provided for printing via the “pay for print” system (equivalent to the “pay for
   print” in the library). The pay-per-print is a coin-operated system.

3. Storage of work: Personal work should be stored on the student’s own CD or USB storage device
   rather than the hard drive in the computer lab. Student work stored on the hard drive is deleted when
   the computer is shut down for any reason.

4. Evaluation of software: Students are asked to evaluate software upon completion to ensure media
   is current and relevant. Please see the Nursing 7 instructor for “CAI Evaluation Tool” or download it
   from the nursing Student Information webpage.
