The primary purpose is to provide direct nursing care to the residents, and to supervise the day-to-day nursing activities performed by nursing assistants. Such supervision must be in accordance with current federal, state, and local standards, guidelines, and regulations that govern our facility, and as may be required by the Director of Nursing, Nurse Manager or Nurse Supervisor to ensure that the highest degree of quality care is maintained at all times. The Graduate Practical Nurse working with a limited permit must work directly under the supervision of a Registered Nurse on the same unit so that consistent supervision is ensured per New York State Professional Licensing Law. The permit holder, (GPN) will be given 3 months from date of employment at ULC to obtain their licensure. A permit expires one year from date of issuance or upon written notice by the Department that the application for licensing has been denied, or 10 days after written notification to the applicant of failure on the licensing exam-whichever occurs first. Failing/passing applicants must inform the Nursing Office or Human Resource Office upon receiving their examination results.
