The role of the AL nurse in medication management
The role of the AL nurse in medication management
Product Code: ALNM2204

Part one—The role of the assisted living nurse in medication management: The role of the assisted living nurse in medication management extends far beyond medication administration under the assisted living license statutes (144G) and rules (MN4659). This session will provide nurses insight into their role and processes needed to meet regulatory and license requirements. 

Part two—Nursing assessments & delegation: Effective delegation is crucial, especially when there are limited staff. While having nurses help in non-clinical matters may boost team morale, having nurses routinely work on non-clinical matters is a waste of time, money, and resources. Learn how to effectively delegate tasks and responsibilities for RNs, LPNs, and unlicensed staff. Timely assessments are required in assisted living. This session will also provide guidance on when assessments are needed and by whom.

This webinar is part of the 2022 Assisted Living Education Series.
