As part of your book order, you are required to purchase the Taylor’s Video Guide to
Clinical Nursing Skills Student Set of CD-ROMs (2007). Information on these CD-ROMs
will help you prepare for activities in the Clinical Nursing Simulation Center, as well as for your
clinical and experiences. Please refer to this packet and your course syllabus for specific

During the sixth week of the semester (October 4-7), you will be assigned a time for a
clinical simulation. During your assigned time, you will coordinate care for your simulated
“patient” incorporating the following skill demonstrations:
Bed-making & Bed Bath Demo

1) View the CD-Rom:
 Module 7: Hygiene
2) Demonstrate proper procedure for giving a bed bath to your assigned “patient” and making
an unoccupied in the CNSC, as observed by your clinical instructor
Body Mechanics & Range of Motion
To complete the body mechanics demo, you must:
1) View the CD-Rom:
 Module 9: Activity
2) Demonstrate proper body mechanics for positioning your assigned “patient” during bathing
and assisting your assigned “patient” out of bed to a chair, in the CNSC, as observed by your
clinical instructor.
3) Demonstrate proficiency in performing range of motion exercises on your assigned “patient”
during bathing, in the CNSC, as observed by your clinical instructor
Vital Signs Demo
To complete the vital signs demo, you must:
1) Attend the pre-clinical session on vital signs.
2) View the CD-Rom:
 Module 1: Vital Signs
3) Assess your assigned “patient’s” temperature using a tympanic electronic thermometer.
4) Assess your assigned “patient’s” radial pulse (+/-5) as confirmed by your clinical instructor
5) Assess your assigned “patient’s” respiratory rate (+/-4) as confirmed by your clinical
instructor
6) Assess your assigned “patient’s” blood pressure (+/-5) as confirmed by your clinical
instructor
Blood Glucose Evaluation Demo
To complete the blood glucose evaluation demo, you must:
1) View the video:
 Diabetes: Hypoglycemia, Hyperglycemia & Monitoring (2004) Concept Media, Irvine,
California
2) Review the procedure for operation of the capillary blood glucose monitoring systems in the

administer medications to your assigned patient. This will be the same patient as your week six
clinical simulation. For the med pass you must have your med cards prepared for each of your
patient’s medications. To prepare for your med pass please complete the following:
Medication Administration Parts I & II
