  • Implementing preventative and rehabilitative nursing procedures
  • Reporting changes in patient condition to physicians and other relevant staff, and assessing the effectiveness of existing care plans
  • Supervising, directing and assigning routine nursing visits to an LPN, in keeping with his/her scope of practice and agency policies
  • Planning discharge services in conjunction with medical personnel, families and caregivers
  • Giving skilled care and treatments to patients who require intermittent nursing services, as needed
  • Obtaining necessary supplies and equipment to provide the most effective care
