1 Adapted from Scope of Practice for RNs: State of Oregon, USA Standards and Scope of Practice for the Licensed Registered Nurse (1) Purpose of Standards and Scope of Practice: (a) To establish acceptable levels of safe practice for the licensed registered nurse (RN); (b) To serve as a guide for the Board to evaluate safe and effective nursing care as well as a guide to determine when nursing practice is below the expected standard of care; (c) To interpret standards and the scope of practice for the licensed practical nurse and the registered nurse. (2) The Board recognizes that the role registered nurse will change over time. Basic education which leads to licensure as a licensed registered nurse establishes entry level competencies. The licensee may add technical skills to practice following initial licensure through such methods as inservice education, on the job training or continuing education. Advanced roles or specialization in nursing may be achieved through a formal program of study or graduate education. The addition of either technical skills to practice or specialization in an advanced role in nursing requires documentation of the method by which competency was gained and evidence that competence has been maintained. (3) Definitions: (a) "Activities of daily living" means those self-care activities which must be accomplished each day in order for clients to care for their own needs and participate in society; (b) "Assessment" means the systematic collection of data about an individual client for the purpose of judging that person's health/illness status and actual or potential health care needs. Assessment involves collecting information about the whole person including the physical, psychological, social, cultural and spiritual aspects of the person. Assessment includes taking a nursing history and an appraisal of the person's health/illness through interview, physical examination and information from family/significant others and pertinent information from the person's past health/medical record. The data collected during the assessment process provide the basis for a diagnosis(es), plan for intervention and evaluation; (c) "Assignment" means that a licensed nurse authorizes another health care provider, including an unlicensed person, to perform a task of nursing care with knowledge that the provider has previously been taught the task, is competent in performance of the task and the task is within the provider's scope of practice or scope of duties; (d) "Critical/fluctuating condition" means a situation where the client's clinical and behavioral state is of a serious nature, expected to rapidly change, and in need of continuous reassessment and evaluation; (e) "Delegation," in its broadest sense, means that a registered nurse authorizes another licensee to perform tasks or assignments which are not usually within the licensee's duties but are within the licensee's scope of practice. "Delegation," in the context of settings where a registered nurse is not regularly scheduled, means that a registered nurse authorizes an unlicensed person to perform a specific task of nursing care in a selected situation with knowledge that the task is not within the usual scope of duties for the unlicensed person. Delegation in settings where a registered nurse is not regularly
2 scheduled, may occur only after the registered nurse follows all steps of the delegation process as outlined in the Board's administrative rules (Division 47); (f) "Direct Supervision" means that the registered nurse, nurse practitioner, licensed physician, or dentist, is physically present and accessible in the immediate client care area and available to intervene if necessary; (g) "Minimal supervision" means that a registered nurse, nurse practitioner, licensed physician, dentist or other independent health care provider recognized by the Board is physically on the premises where the client is being cared for or readily available by telephone; (h) "Nursing diagnosis" means the judgment or conclusion which occurs as a result of nursing assessment. A nursing diagnosis is a statement which describes a client's actual or potential health problems which are amenable to resolution by means of nursing interventions; (i) "Nursing evaluation of care" means reassessment of the client to determine the extent to which client objectives and goals have been met and whether further intervention is needed; (j) "Nursing interventions" means actions deliberately designed, selected and performed to implement the plan of care. Nursing interventions may include: (A) Measures to maintain comfort; (B) Measures to support human functions and responses; (C) Maintaining an environment conducive to well being; (D) Health teaching and counseling; (E) Client advocacy. (k) "Nursing orders" means prescriptions for specific nursing interventions initiated by the registered nurse which are intended to produce the desired outcome or objective, be it short term or long term, as defined in the plan of care; (l) "Nursing process" means the systematic problem solving method licensed nurses use when they provide nursing care. The nursing process includes assessing, making nursing diagnoses, planning, intervening, and evaluating. The steps of the nursing process are interrelated and together form the basis for the practice of nursing; (m) "Plan of care" means the written guidelines developed to identify specific problems of the individual and intervention/regimen necessary to assist individuals or groups to achieve optimal health potential. Developing the plan of care includes establishing client and nursing goals and determining nursing interventions to meet care objectives; (n) "Stable/predictable condition" means a situation where the client's clinical and behavioral state is known, not characterized by rapid changes, and does not require continuous reassessment and evaluation.
