Scope Clarification

  1. I've been out of school for a few years and I cannot find a simple LPNs/LVS can/cannot do the following.

    I'm trying to clarify for Oregon/Washington specifically. I tried reading the Board of Nursing info and that left me more confused.

    I'm leaving a hospital setting and going into either LTC or corrections and want to be sure I'm protecting myself by being very clear on my scope.

    You can address specific questions by communicating with the Board. They will send you a letter or email with their answer. Some Boards have a special address to send these inquiries that is posted on the site. Other than that, the scope, for the most part, is described in broad terms and your facility will have its own policies in place which may be more restrictive.
