Individual Position Statement

Information contained in the statement should clearly demonstrate the student’s perspective, which should be supported by current relevant evidence and reflect current policy and practice within the Australian nursing context with clear reference and linkage to the Nursing & Midwifery Board of Australia Nursing Competencies for Registered Nurses.
“The utilization of an Assistant in Nursing (AIN) in the provision of patient care, as delegated and directed by a registered nurse (RN), is an appropriate, safe, and resource-efficient method of providing nursing care.”
