i recently accepted a nurse manger position at a infirmary for a religious order. never during my interview was i told that the nursing assistants were administering the meds, including narcotics. after starting in the position i questioned this and was told that this was the parctice in place for the past 2 years. there are licensed nurses on staff, however this is not always the case. my question, is this a common practice? if so, i've never heard of it. i have refused to return to the position, as i don't feel comfortable supervising untrained na's who are prepouring and dispensing meds. i'd appreciate any feedback. by the way, i live in pa, if that makes a difference. thanks!!
