Whilst doing the workplace observation you will be required to complete a predetermined amount of mandatory skills under the direct supervision of a Registered Nurse at all times ( as per NMBA professional standards for RNs and ENs).
Prior to enrolling into the unit of study, TAFE will require written confirmation of your employer's support to complete the workplace observation (assessment 5) through an authorisation form signed by your Director of Nursing (TAFE will provide this letter to you).
If you are not currently working in industry you will need to discuss your situation on an individual basis to determine whether you are able to effectively complete the requirements of this unit of study. The outcome of this may result in extra costs associated with Clinical Placement.
Students that are Medication Endorsed but want to complete IV medications will now need to enrol into this unit. All components of this unit must be completed as the Medication Administration cannot be separated from the IV medications.
Students that are not endorsed and have a notation on their AHPRA registration stating that they cannot administer medications will need to complete this unit before the notation is able to be removed by AHPRA. They will then be able to administer IV medications as per their employers policy and procedures.
