5 BSN Student Guidelines & General Information Guidelines and general information are designed to assist you to move into the role of a nursing student. Nursing is a professional practice and college professors will guide you in the development of professionalism as you progress in the BSN program at Okanagan College and UBC Okanagan. 1. Professional Conduct in the Nursing Program The BSN Program at Okanagan College values a collaborative learning environment that supports diversity, empowerment and creativity. Emphasis is placed on the quality of relationships experienced in our education program. The learning environment is fostered by people working together in cooperative, caring ways. Refer to the Professional Conduct Policy in this guide. As professional nurses and nursing students, our ways of being are guided by the Professional Standards for RNs and Nurse Practitioners (CRNBC, 2012). The guidelines for professionalism in the nursing program are based on the College of Registered Nurses of BC (CRNBC) Standards and are intended to clarify the parameters of professional relationships in all learning environments wherever the student is present as a nursing student. These expectations of student conduct are in addition to the Professional Conduct Policy identified in the Okanagan College BSN Student Guide & Policies. Each student is expected to recognize his or her own limitations, act responsibly at all times, and take responsibility for ensuring continued competency and learning. A student may be required to withdraw from a practice placement if the above expectations are not met, or when medical and/or other problems interfere with satisfactory performance. Students will be denied their experience if the preparatory work is deemed unsatisfactory or if the Dean of Science, Technology & Health Portfolio determines that their participation in practice puts the receiving agency or its clients at unreasonable risk. Communicating professionally: Communication between students, professors/professors and others on campus and away from campus is expected to be respectful and professional. Students will use their myokanagan address for all communication. Voice mail is less reliable than e mail. Students are asked send messages from your myokanagan account to the address of the professor/professor rather than leaving messages on the telephone. Professors/professors are not expected to respond on evenings, weekends, or during statutory holidays and vacation.

6 Students are reminded of the expectation that e mails sent to professors and other professional contacts be composed in a manner that is respectful in tone and content. A professional address (myokanagan) must be used at all times. Students are required to ensure that e mail messages do not reflect the following: Over familiarity Use of first name without permission Abuse of e mail etiquette It is the student s responsibility to check e mails to your myokanagan account on a regular basis (at least daily) or more often according to the norms set out in each course. Students will receive BSN program messages to your myokanagan account. Communicating professionally includes knowing who to talk with when you have a concern, issue or problem. Communication must always be respectful. The following guides student nursing communication: First, talk with the person or person(s) involved to find resolution Second, talk with your college professor Third, talk with the BSN Chair Fourth, talk with the Associate Dean STH Communicating professionally is the responsibility of all nurses and nursing students. Process to be followed when unprofessional conduct is observed: First occurrence: the unprofessional conduct will be explored with the student with the aim of promoting quality relationships. The student will be informed if this incident or a repetition of any unprofessional conduct results in documentation to the student file. In the BSN program, a Student Progress Note (SPN) and/or a learning contract are examples of documentation. Subsequent occurrence(s): the unprofessional conduct will be addressed by further discussion with the student and the occurrence will be documented in the student file with a copy provided to the student and BSN Program Chair. Repeated occurrence: the BSN Program Chair will review the student s file, and in consultation with the Associate Dean, Science, Technology, Health & Social Development Portfolio, will determine the need to intervene further. The expectations outlined in this policy about the professional conduct expected of the nursing student and of the Registered Nurse is a topic of discussion in all nursing courses. Professional Practice I (NSGU 112) and Professional Practice II (NSGU 122) will provide nursing students with an opportunity to explore the concept of professional conduct in depth. 3

7 Clarification of unprofessional conduct: Conduct that impedes professional relationships may include, but is not limited to: In the learning environment: Behaviours that are demeaning toward others Disrespectful behaviour Defence arousing behaviour Attention seeking behaviour Lack of attention when others are speaking Gossip/repetition of rumours Breach of confidentiality Lack of regard for the start, break, and closure times of classes Attire that draws undue attention or is provocative to others Failure to honour diversity Failure to take ownership of the responsibility to meet professional and educational expectations Dishonesty In oral and written communication: Over familiarity Use of first name without permission Not following e mail or social media etiquette Messages that lack respectful tone and content Nursing Standards Nursing standards are set by the College of Registered Nurses of BC (CRNBC) and they assist nurses to provide competent and ethical care by setting the requirements of practice (CRNBC, 2012).

Nursing Practice Experiences Location Nursing practice (clinical) experiences are an integral part of the nursing program. They occur across sites (hospitals, community agencies and organizations) and with a variety of populations. Locations for nursing practice occur within and outside of the Okanagan Valley. Student Preferences While an effort will be made to accommodate students' preferences for types and locations of clinical experiences, Okanagan College BSN program reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of any nursing practice placement. All agencies and institutions serving as nursing practice sites must be approved by Okanagan College BSN program. Okanagan College reserves the right to change a student's nursing practice placement. The student has the right to be informed, in writing, of the reasons for the change. Arrangement of Nursing Practice Placements Nursing practice placements are arranged by the BSN Program Chair in consultation with the nursing faculty, students, UBCO and Interior Health. Student Travel and Expenses Related to Nursing Practice Travel is a necessary component of the nursing program. Students must arrange for their own transportation to and from nursing practice sites. Travel, communication and other expenses 8

12 (eg. regular contact with instructor, submission of assignments) are the student's responsibility. Each student must take individual responsibility for decisions regarding his/her safety when required to travel in inclement weather. Safety to Practice All nursing students are advised that it is their ethical and legal responsibility to obtain supervision from the clinical professor or designate when carrying out any nursing intervention for which they have not been previously supervised or in which they are not safe or confident to perform independently. Principles in Determining Nursing Practice Experiences The following guiding principles will be used to determine appropriate nursing practice experiences for students in years one and two of the BSN program. Principle 1: Nursing practice placements will be determined by the program with input from the student. Placements for all practice experiences will be arranged by the BSN Program Chair. Principle 2: Nursing practice experiences should help the student to formulate the Registered Nurse role. Principle 3: The expected outcome of all Consolidated Practice Experiences (CPE) is the extension of and/or consolidation of nursing knowledge and skills. Students may have additional practice hours in some settings. Principle 4: All Consolidated Practice Experiences for nursing students must be with, or overseen by, a Registered Nurse or a Registered Psychiatric Nurse. Principle 5: Year 1: each student must have 1 semester nursing practice and 1 CPE practice in extended/intermediate/rehab care. Year 2: each student must have 1 semester nursing practice in acute care medical, 1 semester nursing practice in acute care surgical, and 1 CPE practice in acute care medical or surgical. Principle 6: Students requesting Out of Region placement (NSGU 230) will need to meet the requirements of the Out of Region Policy guideline. Practice Placement Requirements Due to the need for nursing practice in a variety of settings and to limited placement sites, it is necessary for students to travel to placement sites in Vernon, Penticton, Summerland and Kelowna. 9

13 Year 1: NSGU 124 Students to submit proof of current CPR prior to entering practice areas. This course will emphasize health assessment and coming to know how clients understand and promote their health, and the nurse s role in partnering with clients in this process. The BSN Program Chair, in consultation with the teaching team and UBCO, will select the teaching sites to be used. Lists of tentative practice groups will be distributed to the teaching team for final approval. All students are responsible for transportation to practice sites. Year 1: NSGU 130 Consolidated Practice Experience (CPE) Students to submit proof of current CPR prior to entering practice areas. This course provides two weeks of clinical practice to assist students as they continue to move forward from a health focus toward a health challenge focus. Students will develop an understanding of nurses responsibilities in health and health promotion. It is recommended (not always possible) that NSGU130 students remain in their NSGU124 practice area. Students are expected to work days, evenings, or a combination of both, Monday through Friday, for the duration of this practice experience. Out of Region and international placements are not available for NSGU130. Year 2: NSGU 214 & NSGU 224 Students to submit proof of CPR prior to entering practice areas. These courses will provide students with the opportunity to develop caring relationships with people experiencing episodic health challenges in a variety of acute care settings and in the transitions from hospital to home. The BSN Program Chair, in consultation with the teaching team and UBCO, will select the teaching sites to be used. Lists of tentative practice groups will be distributed to the teaching team for final approval. All students are responsible for transportation to practice sites. 10

14 Year 2: NSGU 230 Consolidated Practice Experience (CPE) Students to submit proof of current CPR prior to entering practice areas. This practice experience is the consolidation of skills used in acute care medical and surgical units. This practicum is 180 hours and is preceptored by an RN on a medical or surgical unit. The student is expected to work the same shifts the RN is working for the duration of the practice experience. The continuity of the shifts is crucial in the consolidation of the skills and knowledge. It usually takes approximately 4 6 weeks to complete. This practice experience may begin at any time, based on the availability of preceptors, from the end of the winter exam period to mid July. The BSN program Chair, in consultation with UBCO, will develop the process for selecting preceptorship sites. The teaching team will inform students of their practicum site based on a review of their practice, identified learning needs and preceptor availability. NSGU 230 students may be able to apply for an out of region placement experience (outside of the Okanagan area) see Out of Region policy. International placement is not available for NSGU Evaluation of Nursing Practice Practice Appraisal Forms (PAFs) Student performance in nursing practice courses is assessed and evaluated on a PAF based on domains of practice. Each semester, the quality indicators for each domain reflect the standard of expectations for students in that semester. Each domain is rated satisfactory (S), needs improvement (NI), not experienced (NE) or unsatisfactory (U). Each domain in final evaluations is rated as satisfactory (S) or unsatisfactory (U). Students with an unsatisfactory rating (U) on a final evaluation will not be eligible for an Out of Region Practice Experience (NSGU 230) or an international nursing experience at UBCO. The PAF is completed by the student and clinical professor, is signed by both and a copy is given to the student. The original is placed in the student's academic file. All academic records are shared by the nursing faculty at Okanagan College and UBCO for purposes of academic progression. 11

15 Student Responsibilities in Nursing Practice Attendance (see BSN Program Policy Missed Practice/ Laboratory Time): Students are expected to attend, and to be on time for all scheduled nursing practices. Students are expected to notify their instructor and the nursing practice site whenever they will be late or absent for any reason. Absence or failure to notify instructors of any absences may result in an unsatisfactory (U) rating in a practice domain. Attendance at nursing practice courses, consolidated practice experiences, and labs is mandatory. Inability to attend any of these courses must be communicated to the clinical professor prior to the experience. Course syllabi will outline attendance requirements. Self Evaluation: Students are expected to complete an appraisal. This completed self appraisal will become part of the student's ongoing nursing practice performance record. The self appraisal must be based on a process of regular documentation by the student about his or her own nursing practice. The written documentation shall be available to the professor on request. Directions for regular documentation and completion of the final self appraisal will be provided by the student's professor. If the above obligations are not met, the student will receive an unsatisfactory (U) rating in a practice domain. Ongoing Feedback: Students have the right to receive on going feedback about their nursing practice performance and also have the responsibility to seek feedback from their professors. Student Responsibility When Experiencing Difficulty in Nursing Practice Courses If a student is experiencing difficulty in a nursing practice course, the student can expect to meet with the supervising professor to discuss specific issues. A Student Progress Note (SPN), Learning Contract (LC) or mid term evaluation may be designed to address the specific issues identified and the activities required by the student to demonstrate satisfactory practice. A time frame for completion of the required activities or performance will be included in the document. If the student wishes to discuss a difficulty in any nursing course, that student should first approach the professor teaching the course. If there is no resolution of the difficulty or if there are other concerns that cannot be resolved by this method, it is appropriate for the student to discuss the difficulty with the Chair of the BSN program, who will take the necessary steps to 12

16 resolve the issue. The Chair of the BSN program exercises the right to discuss the difficulty with the Associate Dean of the Science, Technology, Health & Social Development Portfolio. It is unprofessional for students to discuss course difficulties with other professors or students. Students are encouraged to resolve difficulties with the professor involved. (Refer to BSN Program Policies Nursing Practice Grading and Unsatisfactory Practice and to Student Guidelines Communicating Professionally in the BSN Program). Nursing Practice Portfolios: The nursing practice portfolio is a record of the student's work in the program that directly impacts or reflects upon the student s developing practice. The responsibility for the portfolio lies with the student. The portfolio must minimally contain the face sheets of all practice appraisal forms maintained in a professional manner. The portfolio may also contain: Examples of semester work presentations, group work Attendance at workshops, conferences Skill list record Reference letters, feedback Journaling on very meaningful learning/practice situations The nursing practice portfolios enhance and support the philosophy of partnership in student practice evaluations. The use of student nursing practice portfolios will foster student/professor relationships and create opportunities for open dialogue between student and professors. The nursing practice portfolios will assist the student in developing a better understanding of his/her individual practice and growth, and of learning experiences. The use of portfolios promotes student ownership of his/her practice appraisals. Portfolios also enhance career management, and are helpful in resume writing and job interviews. The nursing practice portfolios will assist professors to develop an understanding of the practice appraisal process for each student. The portfolio does not replace the student file, but will assist the professor to better understand a student's progress in the program. As part of the evaluation process at the end of practice experiences, the student and professor will develop the face sheet of the practice appraisal together. The student will then be given a copy of the face sheet for his/her portfolio. At the beginning of each semester, the professor will be responsible for reviewing the portfolio with the student and discussing practice goals, learning opportunities and expected achievement. 13

17 4. Guidelines for Use of Health Lab (C206/210) 1. To protect the respiratory health of all users, the Health Lab will be fragrance free. NO SMOKING is permitted on the premises. 2. The Health Lab is to be used ONLY by Okanagan College Health program students. Absolutely NO CHILDREN and/or SIGNIFICANT OTHERS permitted in the Health Lab. When students require a partner to practice techniques, a classmate must be chosen due to Worker s Compensation Board (WCB) Regulations. 3. Students in the Health Lab will NOT perform any procedures unsupervised if those procedures involve a threat to the safety of themselves or others. This includes, but is not limited to, lifts and transfers and invasive procedures. The presence of a Lab Monitor DOES NOT constitute supervised practice, since the Lab Monitors are there for the protection of material property and assistance in getting out equipment. 4. Use only WCB approved footwear. This means: flat, non skid soles, closed toes, and closed heels (no clogs or sling backs). 5. In the event of an accident/injury, please let your lab professor know immediately. In the event of an accident/injury during lab practice time when the Lab Monitor is present, please have the Lab Monitor contact Security at local After hours and weekends, call All accidents/injuries must be reported and an Incident report must be completed. 6. Students are reminded that, after a session in the Health Lab, they are to pick up their belongings, straighten bed linen, stack chairs, and attempt to leave the area better than they found it. 7. Schedules of practice times will be posted on bulletin boards outside the Health Lab. Students using the Health Lab during practice time are responsible for signing in and out on the Lab Monitor s clipboard. 8. Be alert and help maintain vigilant surveillance in the Health Lab to safeguard equipment or possessions. Try to keep the doors locked when no one is around. Report suspicious activity to Security at local Food and beverages may be used ONLY for selected lab practice in assisting patients/clients with eating. Students are responsible for cleaning up tables and garbage before leaving the lab. 10. The Health Lab is here for the student s benefit and use. Any comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome contact the Lab Monitor or the Lab Sim Coordinator. 14

18 Dress Code for Health Labs The BSN Program relies on the judgment of students to maintain a reasonable standard of dress and appearance. Guidelines for personal care skills in the Lab include: a) Clothes functional, comfortable, and non restrictive; comply with principles of asepsis ie. Forearms exposed; no bare torsos front or back; no torn clothing. Uniforms will be required in Lab classes as directed by professor. b) Shoes comfortable, clean, low heeled shoes with closed toes and heels (note clogs are not acceptable according to WCB regulations). c) Hair clean, neat, and kept off collar and face. d) Jewelry a plain wedding band is suggested; only use small stud earrings (silver, pearl, or gold). e) Fingernails short, clean; no nail polish, false nails, etc. Health Lab Learning Environment & Equipment: Ask your professor for assistance or clarification if in doubt about procedures. Sometimes it is helpful to experiment with your own style of organizing how you want to work through the procedures. Brainstorm with your partner about the pros and cons of your method and adopt an appropriate way of doing each procedure based on sound principles of safety, comfort, and respect. Conserve Linen: o Reuse blankets and bedspreads and do not send them to the laundry unless soiled. o Provide a freshly made bed for the next clinical group when making an occupied bed. o Used linen should be placed in the laundry bags at the end of each day. o Pillowcases can be changed each time. Cleanliness: o If you notice any evidence of poor hygiene in the Health Lab environment such as unclean floors, lack of hand washing supplies, etc., please note the date and problem and contact the Lab Sim Coordinator or the BSN Program Support person. Security: o Many items in the Health Lab are expensive; some are specialty items. Please use with care and make sure all components are replaced correctly. If leaving a lab unattended, ensure the doors are locked. The skeleton and anatomical models need to be handled with gentleness; they are easily damaged and costly to repair and replace. Do not interchange parts of the models. 15
