Guidelines

Clinical Learning Laboratories Guidelines 

The nursing laboratory is open to all Molloy nursing students for hands-on practice of learned nursing skills, use of supplies and equipment. The nursing laboratory instructors are available to re-enforce, remediate and answer questions regarding hands-on skills. The expectation is that each student's practice time results in a positive and productive experience. All laboratory information is posted on Molloy College Clinical Learning Center webpage, or contact RVC Lab at 516.323.3742 or the Suffolk Lab at 516.323.3576.

Testing Guidelines

  • Students will not have assistance from a lab instructor or peer mentor on the day of testing.
  • Testing will not be done on the day a student attended a review class or the same day a skill is demonstrated in class.
  • Adult partner must be over 18 years old for any skill requiring a partner.  It is the responsibility of the student to bring the adult partner.
  • Testing is conducted on a first-come basis, no scheduled appointments. The sign-in sheet is located at the nurse's station. Students should not sign-in until ready to test. Practice prior to testing is strongly recommended.
  • If an unsuccessful skill test occurs, the student is immediately made aware by the lab instructor and remediated on the skill. A student may test a second time, with a different lab instructor, on a different day. If the student is unsuccessful after the second test, the lab instructor will notify the lecture professor for subsequent testing protocol
