RN Procedural Sedation Rules



Relevant Text: 

The Oregon State Board of Nursing affirms that it is within scope of practice for the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Registered Nurse (RN), Nurse Practitioner (NP) and the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) to administer sedating agents for the purpose of anxiolysis. In addition, it is not within the scope of practice of the LPN, RN, NP or CNS to administer anesthetic agents for the purpose of anxiolysis. If the patient receiving sedating/anesthetic agents for anxiolysis progresses to a deeper level of sedation, the nurse responsibility and requirements outlined in this policy guideline for procedural sedation must be followed.
