Lecture Overview

A practitioner's scope of practice is forever changing, and this can sometimes be difficult to navigate. However, determining your scope of practice doesn't need to be confusing. In this lecture, associate professor Dr Linda Starr discusses scope of practice in the context of enrolled nurses. She looks at the role and function of an EN, provides examples of activities commonly performed by ENs, and explores the consequences of practising beyond your scope.
