Abstract

The nursing shortage has prompted a recurring discussion about the appropriate mix of bedside care givers in nursing that can be constructed to ensure quality patient care. As nursing's role has become more professional, there has arisen a need to differentiate work tasks and develop nurse extenders. The author discusses nursing and non-nursing duties as they relate to a model of nurse extenders and related practice issues.
