Errata Note

The Journey to Become a Certified Medical Assistant: Oregon Imminews Article, December 3rd, 2014

Note: The following original sentence was corrected on 12/8/14 in the text below: An RN can observe, teach and report on an MA but cannot delegate tasks or duties to an MA. More information on the Nurse Practice Act, which is mentioned in the corrected sentence, can be found at: http://www.oregon.gov/OSBN/pages/adminrules.aspx

Here is the corrected sentence:

"Keep in mind that all MAs are under the direct delegation of the hiring physician. An RN can observe and teach an MA. RNs can also supervise an MA and delegate tasks to them according to Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN) Nurse Practice Act Division 45 and 47. RNs can delegate several types of tasks to MAs, but immunization injections are not one of the tasks. The hiring practitioner delegates immunization injections to the MA."
