Do you know how to wash your hands the right way?

You will be graded on Handwashing at the beginning and end of your first skill. It is important that you work up a good lather and rub with friction for at least 20 seconds. This 20 seconds is friction (rubbing) and does not include time spent on your nails.

How to Time Your Handwashing

Some people sing songs when they wash their hands (like “Twinkle, twinkle…” or “Happy Birthday”) but this is not an effective timing method for the exam. There will be a clock right above the sink…use it! This is what the evaluator will use to ensure you have rubbed for at least 20 seconds!
