This article concluded with the understanding that the best way to ensure successful delegation was to make sure the registered nurse and the nursing assistant relationship was collaborative and the willingness to communicate was strong. There was also a strong discussion about the importance of then nurse manager in this scenario as well and I felt as though this tied into our course content very well.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
