The registered nurse may assign certain tasks to unlicensed assistive personnel. The registered nurse will utilize the "RN Assignment Decision Tree," generated by the Georgia Board of Nursing, to assist the registered nurse to make appropriate decisions regarding whether to assign a task to an unlicensed person. The RN Assignment Decision Tree assists the registered nurse to evaluate client care tasks on an individual client basis; it guides the nurse to assign only those tasks that can be safely performed by trained unlicensed assistive personnel
