PEP Clinical Skills

An important aspect of nursing at any stage of your career is only performing clinical skills within your scope of practice. Scope of practice can be defined as a skill or procedure for which you have the appropriate knowledge, psychomotor skills, and permission to perform.

Generally, a skill or procedure is within your scope of practice once you have received the theory and practice opportunities within professional experience workshops prior to performing the skill on PEP. Students are required to be familiar with each PEP practice level requirements. Overviews of clinical interventions are found within the subject outline. It is expected that students will have a hard copy of the subject outline with you whilst on PEP.
