INSTRUCTORS - You are required to read and complete the following information
- The Point of Care Glucometer Testing competency is required for all undergraduate students who will be performing glucose testing in the clinical setting. In addition to completing the module in ACEMAPP, all students must complete a demonstration with their instructor. For UMSN students, this will likely be completed in the Skills Lab. Non-UM students will complete this on the unit with their instructor. A demo check-list for Accu-Check competency evaluation is provided for you to reference and does not need to be mailed back to Clinical Placement. ACCU-CHECK CHECKLIST
Student nurses may not perform point-of-care glucose testing in the ICUs on critically ill patients (defined as patients having an arterial line). Student nurses may draw the sample of blood from the arterial line but must give the sample to the RN to perform the test.
Students will not receive barcode stripsfor performing glucose testing. Instead, students will type their 8 digit UMID number into the glucometer.
Please complete the Point of Care Glucometer Demo with your students by the second week of the term.
