Audience: This self-paced online CE course was developed for licensed nurses - both Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses (LPN/LVN) who delegate nursing care functions.*
*Note that in most states, RNs are authorized to delegate. In some states, LPN/VNs are authorized to delegate in specified settings and/or circumstances.
