In our institution, the novice observes 5 procedures, then 5 procedures are done under supervision. This includes LP/IT chemotherapy; bone marrow aspirate and bone marrow biopsy. Then, when privileges are completed, the documentation of the procedures are shared with our administrative office.
At this time we do not have specific documents specific to these procedures.

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!
