Skilled and Technical
Competitors demonstrate their ability to perform procedures and skills consistent with practical nursing competencies as determined by State Boards of Nursing.

They must also demonstrate their abilities to perform job skills such as administration of oral, subcutaneous, and nasogastric medications; physical assessment; insertion of a nasogastric tube; sterile dressing change; and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. At each workstation, they are judged on accuracy of their skill, organization, communication, and safety.
