Examine the delegation scenario in light of your state’s Nurse Practice Act. Then, compare it to the Nurse Practice Act of another state. Citations from professional nursing literature, as well as your state’s Nurse Practice Act or scope of practice documents, can be used as resources. Include your state’s definition of delegation in the introductory paragraph and the definition of the comparison state in the body of the paper.
Was the nurse able to delegate this task to the nursing assistant in accordance with your state’s definition of delegation? If so, why or why not? Compare and contrast this delegation scenario with another from your nursing practice.
