i am a new nurse, still in my first year, i work on a tele floor. i usually have 7 pts, sometimes 9. as a new grad this is pretty overwhelming. where i work the lpn does everything the rn's do except atart blood, iv pushes, & hang some iv meds (cardiac gtt's), oh, and we take and write orders from dr's but we cant note them off. i am the type of person who always follows the rules, if there is a rule, i follow it, no exceptions. i recently had an rn who had charge over my pt's say to me, "anything you arent supposed to do, just do, i trust you, and i will sign off on it." although it is flattering to have the trust of people i work with, i just know i am never going to compromise myself when it comes to my scope of practice. that being said, i dont want to risk offending the rn that said that, i work with her all the time. any advice on how to handle this situation. i dont want to offend her, but i have to ask her to help with stuff i am not supposed to do. i always offer to help out, like if i need someone to give some pushes, i offer to give their po meds, i try not to be a burden, i am a team player, i dont want her to think i am just being lazy when i have to ask for help. any advice at all would be helpful!
