Module 07 Assignment – Assigning Tasks Policy

Module 07 Content


  1. You work in a nursing home as an LPN. Recently, you were reviewing the employee handbook and discovered there is not a clear policy on the role of the practical nurse in assigning tasks for client care. You decide to create a new policy to be added to the employee handbook in your nursing facility. The information to be added to the handbook will be used to train and prepare incoming LPNs. To create the policy, utilize resources including the Nurse Practice Act and be sure to follow your state’s requirements when creating the policy.
    The following information should be contained within the new policy for the handbook:

    • Identify other employees to whom the LPN can assign tasks
    • List and describe the tasks that can be assigned
    • Explain the rationale behind the role of the practical nurse and the risks posed if LPNs do not adhere to their role
