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!
