Pelvic Exams

By Cheyenne Rothermel posted 05-12-2014 08:48 PM

I have found several different programs requiring different credentialing.  When you have a new examiner with no training except for the 40 hour didactic training, what are the requirements for the number of pelvic exams?  Does anyone know the number the IAFN requires or what individual programs recommend?
Any assistance would be appreciated

I believe this is left up to each individual program. However, we are a pediatric program and we require 20 exams (majority acute but a couple of non acute). The adult program I work with requires 5 but will increase based on the need of the nurse that is training.
