We have a RN quitting at work and our CM is going to replace him with a LPN. The LPN has lots of experience, but does not feel comfortable doing assessments.
I looked the scope of practice up on the LLR website. It stated, the role of the LPN is to assist in the assessment.
There are no LPNs in our area that does assessments in dialysis. She does not want to do the assessments, but the CM said she would train her how to do them. If she does learn how to do assessments, they may find a reason she is not needed.
Any LPNs in dialysis that can answer this question, please help.
