The Lab Resource Nurse is a Registered Nurse who supports the Bachelor of Science of Nursing (BSN), Practical Nursing (PN) and Health Care Assistant (HCA) programs in the Faculty of Health and Human Services. The main role of the Lab Resource Nurse is to, upon referral from a faculty/instructor member, provide remediation to students to assist them in achieving safe practice of nursing skills, consolidate critical thinking competencies, and to help overcome challenges related to specific nursing skills in a non-evaluative environment. The Lab Resource Nurse will provide feedback to students and faculty/instructors, but is not responsible for student evaluation–evaluation is the responsibility of the student’s instructor. As well, it is not the role or responsibility of the Lab Resource Nurse to provide instruction to students for missed classes.
The Lab Resource nurse normally works with students on a 1:1 basis or, if appropriate, in a small group (maximum of 4 students/group). Sessions are typically booked in 30 minute to 1 hour appointments to a maximum of three sessions/student/semester. If a student requires/requests remediation beyond three sessions/semester, the student must be re-referred by the faculty/instructor.
