Protect patient care in Iowa

We the undersigned Iowa nurses are opposed to the proposed changes to the LPN/RN scope of practice which would allow LPN’s to perform increased intravenous access and administration activities under the supervision and accountability of the RN. 

 

Opposing these changes is a matter of protecting patients and maintaining public safety. We are responsible for patients with increasing complexities, more needs and greater technology available to them. Now is not the time to diminish the level of education required to provide the best possible outcomes for our patients.

There are exceptions, of course, but who wants to be a glorified IV nurse when most of us became nurses to be at the bedside.
