Your right to say “NO”

Does a nurse have the right to say “No” to an assignment?

We as nurses, must always remember to work within our scope of practice, knowledge and skills. It’s easier to lose a license than to obtain one. I have seen management push to the point of forcing nurses in taking assignments that they are not trained or experienced enough to do. I have also seen to many good nurses go down because of the fear of saying no to management. New graduates, never accept an assignment that you will not be able to handle. Approach your charge nurse and discuss your concern. Stand your ground and protect the license that you have worked so hard to obtain. You do have the right to say “NO.” Experienced nurses let us take our new grads under our wings and help them become great nurses.
