    Oops sorry.. my bad..... hope you can get the book.....by the way, I didn't mean that you would get tested on this book, but on delegation, and priority.


    Wishing you well...

    So, this is my next question...

    I am working through Delegation book suggested (and Kaplan), both very good.
    Could you in a nut shell clarify delegation duties RN/LPN/nursing assistant?
    With not having worked in US, need clarification.
    I have read the State Practice Act as suggested in Delegation book, which suggests...
    RN- unstable, pt need assessing etc
    LPN- stable pts, (unsure re IV, blood trans)
    NA- physical bodily functions. However, it also implies that some NA with further training can do IV, meds etc?
    (In UK, RN ans EN could do IV, blood trans, meds. NA only washing etc.)

    Further advice appreciated, although I am sure the more I get through this book it will help.

    My understanding in general LPNs can not do blood transfusions. They also can not assess and teach.

    So, what about admitting, they need to assess there?
    If not tasks above, what roles/tasks can they do?

    Let me get my thinking cap on and will write something later They are a lot different that EN's

    Are you taking the exam for RN or LPN? When you get the Saunders book, make sure you get the edition for the NCLEX exam you will be taking. Good luck on the exam.
