I recently read an OJIN article entitled "Developing Delegation Skills" (Weydt, A., 2010). I was very impressed to find this resource regarding this issue of nursing delegation. As nursing students we frequently wonder what can or cannot be delegated to assistant personnel. As a future nurse, I will need to learn my limitations in handing over some nursing care activities to another nursing staff member. It is comforting to know that even professional nurses are sometimes challenged to know what they can and cannot delegate to others.
I will definitely be passing this article on to the other senior nursing students at my university. As our graduation approaches, they will find this article to be interesting and informative. Please extend our gratitude to the author, and I will continue to read OJIN.

Thank you so much for all the great articles. I teach in a nursing school in Texas and use the articles for computer discussions throughout the semester. There is a vast range of topics that are easy to access.

Dr. Coeling -
I am very excited to discover your online publication. Your site came up after a Google search of current issues in nursing. I am in the middle of an accelerated bilingual nursing program in Phoenix, Arizona, and am always looking for opportunities to immerse myself in my current field of study. I look forward to sharing my discovery with my classmates!
