Nursing Scope of Practice Guideline

Nurses are accountable to understand their scope of practice and effectively optimize their roles based on their legislated scope of practice, education, individual competence, experience and employer policies.

We developed this practice guideline to help nurses understand the concepts related to scope of practice, including scope of the profession, individual scope of practice and scope of employment. Additionally this resource is intended to be used when nurses are considering if an intervention or competency falls within their scope of practice and if they should perform the intervention.
