Advanced Provider Preceptors: New Cerner Functionality and Job Aid Endorsing Student Notes

Audience: APP Preceptors

New functionality called “Sign Do Not Authenticate (SDNA)” will be coming to the APP Student Cerner position which will force students who sign a note (either Powernote or Dyn Doc) to select a provider to send for endorsement. The note will appear in the message center inbox of the provider selected which can then be modified or addended and will remain in Preliminary status until endorsed.

It is at the discretion of the preceptor and their responsibility to direct and oversee the student’s utilization of Cerner documentation during their clinical rotation.
