- Jun 17 by classicdameBe sure you know what the nurse practice act in your state (if USA) allows you to do. In Texas a nurse extern does not have a scope of practice and can only perform duties same as any unlicensed, but trained, person can do. In other words, like a CNA. Even with RN supervision their is probably a cap on what you can do legally. Good luck and learn lots!
