Action Request - RN Nursing Delegation Changes

Summary: The Action Request asks CMEs to communicate to RNs who delegate nursing tasks about changes in rule and practice. The AR also asks CMEs to help RNs (when asked) in finding individuals they may have previously worked with in order to come into compliance with new rules.
