The American Nurses Association (ANA) online CE module, Developing Delegation Skills
, is taken from one of the articles published in the OJIN: The Online Journal of Issues in Nursing topic Delegation Dilemmas: Standards and Skills for Practice
One of the most complex nursing skills is that of delegation. It requires sophisticated clinical judgment and final accountability for patient care. Effective delegation is based on one’s state nurse practice act and an understanding of the concepts of responsibility, authority, and accountability.
The purpose of this ANA online CE is to enhance RN comprehension of delegation in order to meet patient care needs in an environment of shrinking resources.
1.64 contact hours will be awarded to nurses who successfully complete this CNE activity.
