|Vancouver WA Nurse Delegation|
Nurse Delegation Certification allows trained caregivers to receive special authority from a registered nurse, under her license, to administer some medications or do some procedures that might otherwise require a family member or other medical professional to be present. This can be very helpful when one can no longer take medications on their own.
Nurse Delegation provides caregiver specific training on tasks that are usually only performed by licensed nurses.Caregivers routinely assist with medication assistance for their clients, however nurse delegation may be required if the person receiving care is unable to take their medication with assistance and needs medication administration instead. Our Nurse Delegation is a 9-hour self study course.
