Nurse Delegation Courses
The Nurse Delegation Program, under Washington State law, allows nursing assistants working in certain settings to perform certain tasks–such as administration of prescription medications or blood glucose testing–normally performed only by licensed nurses. A registered nurse must teach and supervise the nursing assistant, as well as provide nursing assessments of the patient’s condition.
Nurse Delegation w/ Special Focus on Diabetes
Welcome to Nurse Delegation for Nursing Assistants: Special Focus on Diabetes.
In spring of 2008, a law was passed by the Washington State legislature allowing nursing assistants to perform insulin injections as a nurse delegated task. Because of this law and nursing assistants like you, DSHS clients with diabetes now have the choice and freedom to live at home or in a residential care facility when insulin injections are needed.
