    Holly,
    Our credentials committee requires 10 documented supervised procedures before they will credential us for procedures.  We then need to do 10 a year to keep “competent”.  I don’t have any orientation documents specific to the procedures.  We just have them keep a list that is signed off by the preceptor and submitted to the credentialling committee.

    Fellow APNs, I need your help!

    If you do LP/ITC and bone marrow testing at your institution, please tell me how many of each a novice APN must perform under supervision before he/she is privileged/credentialed to do independently. If there is not a set number, but up to the trainer and the new APN, let me know that too.

    If you have and orientation documents specific to these procedures, I would love to see them.

    Thanks, in advance, for any help that you can give!
