Assignment and Delegation: Guidelines for Nurses

We developed Assignment and Delegation: Guidelines for Nurses to provide a framework for nurses when assigning or delegating to unregulated care providers (UCPs) or other members of the healthcare team. These guidelines outline the differences between assignment and delegation as well as the accountabilities and consideration for nurses prior to assigning or delegating care to UCPs. 

If you have any questions about the Assignment and Delegation: Guidelines for Nurses, please reach out to us at practice@nscn.ca
