Need Help With Assignment

Students General Students


I need input for a class assignment I hope you can help

The Question is: Should RPN's be given more medical duties/responsibilities that they are not presently permitted to take on?

I need: one primary source- someone's input

secondary source- books, journals, websites, etc.

Thanks for your help....

Oh geez What's a RPN? Registered Private Nurse.

Then the answer is no a RPN should not take on more duties than they are permitted. As a RN I allready have too many duties and it would be unsafe for me to take on any extra duties.

RPN is a Registered Practical Nurse. I believe it's the same as an LPN in the U.S.A. Although in Canada it is a two year diploma program.

Could you elaborate on why you say "No", please? All the input you have is great.
