Red Flags & Questions I See in the #AmandaTrujillo, ARNP Case, April 25, 2012 By @BethBoynton #nurseup

Red Flags & Questions I See in the Amanda Trujillo, ARNP Case, April 25, 2012 By Beth Boynton:”Amanda Trujillo is an ARNP yet was practicing as an RN. Now maybe there is a perfectly good explanation for this. Third shift is typically tough to staff and given our economy and the financial needs and family commitments, perhaps this was a perfect job opportunity for Amanda. But, honestly, I wonder why she wasn’t practicing as an ARNP rather than an RN? Scope of practice is an important issue in the case and quite different for RNs and ARNPs. Banner health could face serious liability issues if their RNs on duty are practicing out of scope.”
