The Clinical Nurse I (CN I) may be a new graduate of an RN program, a new employee on orientation, or new graduates or hires who are building a knowledge base through practice and are most comfortable in a task environment. These nurses are obtaining knowledge and experience in clinical and technical skills. While on orientation and under the guidance of a preceptor, the CN I collects objective data according to guidelines and rules obtained from nursing education and in orientation. Once off orientation, the CN I’s practice is guided by policies, procedures and standards. They describe a clinical situation from the viewpoint of what they need to do, rather than relating the context of the situation or how the patient responds. The CN I practices from a theoretical knowledge base as they recognize and provide for routine patient needs and provide professional nursing care within clinical areas/ campuses as required by staffing matrices.
