    CPD points

    I do not know about free course for CPD but I do know a good website called Nursesfornurses. It will cost $99 a year and they have loads plus lots of reading information too.

    Can Aged Care AIN's who is qualified with competency can give Wafarin without RN checking? or does a RN have to check and counter sign with AIN ? for Wafarin.

    EEN's working as PCA's sometimes

    Is there any EEN's working in Aged Care here? I was wondering what are your normal duties of the shift for EEN's? Do you work as PCA's (EEN's) sometimes with other PCA's? Is this normal practice for EEN's are required to work on the floor with other PCA's? if this practice not right and not by law who do I report this to?

    EEN's running the floor without RN's

    No it is not me, I would not do this never ever. I just hear around from other people talking about this but did not say were and when but they did finally find a RN from agency coming in.

    EEN's running the floor without RN's

    Due to shortage of RN's and even the Agency have shortage and can not provide RN's when you need them when RN calls in sick 30 minutes before handover. Then the EEN's have no choose but to run the floor, give the medications, insulins, injections, S8 etc. It is very difficult to find RN's that like Aged Care, some will tell you hats off for Aged Care, RN's love better working in Hospitals than Aged Care.
