Rules regarding delegationRegister Today!
- by deftonez188 Feb 13, '11Hi there!
I was wondering, are the rules regarding delegation the same for all nurses nationwide or are they state-specific? Where can they be found?
- Feb 13, '11 by kidsThey are State specific.
In WA & OR the rules are on the BoN website.

I just had to remember the key words- teach, assess, plan etc that are words that apply to only RNs. Your place of business should also have policies reguarding certain activities that are allowed to be delagated.
- Feb 24, '11 by NurseinprocessIf you mean between nurse and PCA I have determined it has everything to do with the particular PCA and not much to do with policy . I am still trying to figure out after 10+ months what I can and can't ask other staff to do for me/pt.
