INSTRUCTIONS Student will indicate the date that the skill is performed in the course specified. Student should indicate if the skill
was performed in the lab (L) or if the skill was performed during direct patient contact (P). If the student has the opportunity to
perform a skill during direct patient care that has previously been noted as done in the lab, the student should update this form to
indicate performance of skill with a (P), and the revised date if during the same course. If the student performs a skill previously
learned in NUR 2103 during direct care of NUR 3104, the student should indicate this in the NUR 3104 column and not change the
NUR 2103 notes. This document should be completed electronically and be submitted to the clinical instructor at midterm
and final. In addition, the checklist should be kept up-to-date in the individual student portfolio. Skills taught in the NUR 2102 do not
require a date of completion but provide a frame of reference for the student to monitor health assessment skills. It is the sole
responsibility of the student to keep this document up to date.
