Grading Rubric and Hints for this Discussion Question


Class this question  is asking you how you determine if an action is within your scope of practice.  Do not confuse scope of practice (legal regulation) and the ANA’ s standards of nursing practice (minimum competencies).


This model from the ANA web site may help you conceptualize how we assess our scope of practice.  Discussion on the ANA web site and your own Board of Nursing site and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing  will also be useful in learning how to assess your scope of practice.
