Nurse Delegation for Nursing Assistants is a 9-hour self-study course preparing a nursing assistant (registered or certified) to perform a task as delegated by a registered nurse. The self study uses an instructional video and workbook. Once you have completed the self study, you must pass a written test.
A nursing assistant (registered or certified) must take this course before performing a nurse delegated task. There are strict training and professional requirements about what a nursing assistant must complete before performing a nurse delegated task.
Other caregivers that are not nursing assistants (registered or certified) can also take this course for Continuing Education credit. You would not be able to accept any delegated tasks until you meet all training and professional requirements.
