Scope of a  licensed practical nurse (LPN) reflection paper

You will write a reflection paper discussing the scope of practice of an LPN. There are 4 sections in this assignment. Each section must be at least 2 paragraphs (approximately 3-5 sentences each) and in your own words.

Section 1: Discuss the LPN scope of practice and pick 3 areas from the attached list from the Minnesota Boards of Nursing. Give an example for each scope and discuss how you will perform this at the bedside as a licensed LPN. What are some specific tasks that you might be expected to complete that would meet these requirements?

Section 2: What did you learn in section 1? What can an RN do that an LPN cannot? Is there anything that surprised you?

Section 3: Discuss how you will delegate tasks to Nursing Assistants. What can you ask them to do?

Section 4: Discuss and reflect on how you, as a LPN, will ensure you are practicing within your scope. How will you communicate with other medical professionals what your scope includes and does not include? What would you do if someone delegated a task outside of your scope?
