* 40.1 CEUs

The Clinical Nurse I is a newly licensed, new-to-practice RN or RN with less than 15 months of experience that demonstrates basic safe practice within the organizational professional practice model. The Clinical Nurse I seeks guidance to integrate concepts, knowledge, skills and attitudes to meet standards for competent professional nursing practice.

The Clinical Nurse I exhibits UPHS organizational behavioral competencies which reflect its mission and are embedded in the professional practice competency domains. The Clinical Nurse I is accountable for the provision of direct care to patients who may rangein age from infancy to the elderly and demonstrates within the competency domains of Continuous Quality Improvement, Evidence Based Practice and Research, Leadership, Person and Family Centered Care, Professionalism, Safety, Teamwork, and Technology/ Informatics.

The Clinical Nurse I works closely with the interprofessional health care team to facilitate the coordination of care across the continuum. The nurse focuses on developing the knowledge and skills necessary to provide individualized care based on physical, psychosocial, cultural, educational, safety, and age appropriate considerations of assigned patients. The Clinical Nurse I requires consultation with more experienced clinicians and benefits from feedback while demonstrating growth in the ability to care for increasingly complex patients. The nurse demonstrates how nursing practice impacts the organizational vision, mission, and goals and the care delivery system. The nurse complies with all regulations and standards of regulatory and accrediting bodies.

The Clinical Nurse I must complete all Clinical Nurse I competencies and is expected to advance to the Clinical Nurse II Colleague level by 18 months of professional practice.
