There was not guide when I learned. Just observed another NP and then performed the procedure with observation by a trained NP. I believe in most states that you need a standardized procedure. I’m not longer in Peds Hem/Onc and don’t have copies of my standardized procedures, but I’m sure someone has one they could share with you. Tamara Scott
Good morning fellow NPs,
I have been working in a peds hem/onc clinic as an NP for a few months, and I would like to start learning how to perform LPs and bone marrow aspiration/biopsies. I was wondering if any of you who perform these procedures have a training guide you used and would be willing to share?
