There are times when it is necessary for the nurse to delegate tasks to other members of the healthcare team, like those with a different scope of practice guidelines such as unregulated health care providers (UCPs). Delegation is defined as “a process by which a health care professional who has the legal authority to perform a controlled act transfers that authority to an unauthorized person (CNA, 2009).
This module includes informative books, ebooks, journals, databases, videos, and more to assist you with learning and understanding more about the nurses' roles and responsibilities when delegating tasks or activities in practice.
