The administration of blood and blood products is only to be administered by registered nurses in the state of Pa. The Pa. State Board of Nursing is a regulatory body, not a legislative one.
The purpose of the Board is to ensure safe nursing services for the citizens of the Commonwealth.(State Board of Nursing, Pennsylania Code Title 49 Professional anf Vocational Standards, Chp.21)
You can go online at the state board of nursing to check out your nurse practice act.
There is also an opportunity to sit on the Board. I believe there are 2 LPN positions and one of them held by Ricard Kerr, President of NAPNES is up this month. There is an application online. I believe you apply, then must get appointed by the Governer. I think it is a 6 year term. It's worth looking into.
LPNs can now take verbal orders within the State of Pa. now, within our scope of practice. However, it is up to the facility to interpret that and can restrict your scope how they want.
I hope this was helpful!
