Explanation:

Nurses may also delegate tasks to those with a more narrow scope of practice. For example, an RN might delegate PO med passes to the LPN. An LPN may delegate tasks such as ambulating or feeding a patient to the CNA. The question of when a nurse should delegate is dependent on many factors.
