Teaching Modules/Skills Checklist for Nurse Aide II Tasks
The modules/skills checklists below have been recently revised. A summary of the revisions is listed below for easy reference.
- Clarification that the Fingerstick Training Module is not a required part of the NAII curriculum
- Clarification of completion of the Sterile Technique modules as a required component of specifically identified modules.
- Clarification of the responsibility of the licensed nurse versus the NAII in specific patient assessment/care situations.
- Clarification that only the RN may provide NA training and competency validation.
- Addition of the Decision Tree for Delegation to UAP information.
- Clarification that care related to suprapubic catheters must be specifically delegated using the Decision Tree for Delegation to UAP.
- Deletion of urinary catheter irrigation from the NAII module.
- Addition of a definition of an established ostomy.
Urinary catheter irrigation was removed from the NAII modules following a review of the literature to determine current evidence-based practice. In addition, representatives from practice, nursing education, and NAII programs were surveyed to determine current practice, as well as the effect deletion of this information from the modules would have on the practice settings.
The ostomy definition was added following consultation with wound care nurse specialists.
