I'm not doing your homework. I would just like to know if you're really from Canada, because these questions do not make sense for a Canadian nurse.

My views are irrelevant to your homework. Your statements don't make sense for a US or Canadian practical nursing student. In Canada scope of practice and what may be delegated is governed by the provincial college of nurses.
