Above is a list i put together to help me understand what an RN, an LPN/LVN, and a UAP/CNA can do.
I've been pretty good with delegation so far.
Now I'm starting to see different kinds of RNs and LPNs and it's throwing me off.
I know that RNs floating from another unit are treated like LPNs. And I know that if gender is specified, that means there is a patient who has gender preferences.
But how do I, as the charge nurse, go about delegating tasks to:
- experienced RNs
- experienced LPNs
- experienced nursing assistants
- nursing students
- and an LPN/LVN who is fuctioning under the supervision of an RN
What is within their scopes of practice?
