The scope of nursing practice differs based on each state. According to the GCU’s NRS 430V Lecture 3, “The scope of practice is developed in collaboration with nurses currently practicing, nursing education agencies, and regulatory bodies (2011, pg. 1).” It is about the actions, decisions, and boundaries nurses are learned to do based on their education. I currently work in New York. In New York, according to the New York State Law, Article 139, Section 6902, the nurse practice is defined as:

“The practice of the profession of nursing as a registered professional nurse is defined as diagnosing and treating human responses to actual or potential health problems through such services as casefinding, health teaching, health counseling, and provision of care supportive to or restorative of life and well-being, and executing medical regimens prescribed by a licensed physician, dentist or other licensed health care provider legally authorized under this title and in accordance with the commissioner’s regulations. A nursing regimen shall be consistent with and shall not vary any existing medical regimen” (pg. 1).

Under the scope of nursing practice, the RNs job is to use their education to do humanizing patient care. RNs do that with critical thinking, evidence-based practices, and supports from licensed physicians. Nurses are not allowed to give nursing services they are not competent to perform.
