Description: This program will provide you with the advocacy skills and the communication strategies needed to appropriately respond when you are told “just do your best,” but your nursing judgment determines you cannot safely meet the needs of the patient. Topics will include patient abandonment, mandatory overtime, and assuming an assignment under duress or objection. Documentation of unsafe assignments and mandatory overtime will be explored. The program will explain who should accept the liability and responsibility for an unsafe assignment.
