SIM 405 Professional Standards Delegation Of Selected Nursing Tasks Discussion

Nurses must act to prevent unsafe and unethical care practices. Many resources exist to resolve ethical and other practice dilemmas.

Watch the Professional Standards Scenario in this module (below) before continuing.

Once you’ve watched the scenario, analyze it related to delegation according to your own state’s Nurse Practice Act and compare it to one other state’s Nurse Practice Act. According to your state’s definition of delegation, was the nurse able to delegate this task to the nursing assistant? Why or why not? Compare and contrast this scenario with another delegation scenario from your nursing practice.
