The written tests can be taken prior to arrival for the proficiency testing. Tests can be found in the Learning Exchange.
Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) certification is an annual requirement for staff who work in clinical areas approved by the Medical Director of Laboratories to perform testing. Particular staff roles (for ex. RN, LPN, etc) must also be approved to perform POCT. If you are unsure as to whether your role and/or unit has been approved to perform POCT, please contact your supervisor.
The written tests can be taken prior to arrival for the proficiency testing. Tests can be found in The Learning Exchange.
This is not training. You must have had initial orientation for this testing. It is a time for you to show your proficiency.
