What Registered Nurses Need to Know (CA)

This is a two-part, in-person CE Class from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (6 hours of CE credits).

Participants must be in attendance all day to receive the full 6 CEU CE credits.

Part 1: Nursing Practice and Delegation: What Registered Nurses Need to Know (CA)

Course Description

This class will provide a nursing practice regulatory review to guide your practice. Too often, the roles and responsibilities of staff are defined by the employer. It is essential for registered nurses to understand their role in safe and appropriate delegation and supervision as outlined in the Nurse Practice Act and other health care delivery regulation, guided by the independent professional judgment of the registered nurse. Thus enabling the registered nurse to act with authority and confidence in supervision and delegation. This course will clarify and evaluate the principles of delegation and supervision of nursing tasks by the registered nurse.

Course Objectives

At the completion of this class nurses will be able to:

  1. Differentiate the roles and scope of practice of various health care team members;
  2. Describe and understand the principles of safe delegation by the registered nurse to licensed practical nurses and unlicensed personnel;
  3. Identify strategies of collective patient advocacy to ensure that nursing care meets patient needs in accordance with the California Nurse Practice Act.

Part 2: The Impact of Technology on Professional RN Practice and Safe Staffing Standards

Course Description

This course examines the effects of technology-driven patient care — which includes the introduction of virtual nursing platforms, remote patient monitoring, and artificial intelligence (AI)—on professional RN practice and safe staffing standards. The course will also examine some industry-led initiatives that are facilitating the increase of remote models of care.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify how information technology can interfere or interrupt the RN potential to provide safe, therapeutic, and individualized patient care;
  2. Describe how unfettered use of technology will have a chilling effect on the RN's ability to exercise independent professional judgment in the interest of her/his patients; and
  3. Plan collective patient advocacy strategies to ensure health care technologies are exclusively used to enhance patient care and nursing practice.
