Thursday Sep 29 at 10:39am “I reside in New York State. I am not particularly
familiar with my state’s nurse practice act. I read all of the things that a registered nurse is authorized to do in NY
state, and the rules and regulations regarding nursing practice. One other thing I learned from the website is that
In NY, the state board of nursing consists of at least 15 members, 11 being RNs an 4 being LPNs. I really appreciate that LPNs are included because, for example, the LPNs I work with are so knowledgeable, having many years of
experience as opposed to my two years of experience that I often rely on their important input when a situation
arises with one of my long term care residents. I am the only RN on my unit at a time and my LPNs are wonderful
nurses and have a lot of importance on my unit. The knowledge I have gained in this discussion assists me in my
practice in that I know more about my state’s scope of practice for a registered nurse. NYSED.gov. (2022). “
