I recently received the following question:
[In North Carolina,] can a CMA (AAMA) be a supervisor over LPNs [licensed practical nurses] and RNs [registered nurses], as well as CMAs (AAMA)?
To answer this question, note the following information from the “Frequently Asked Questions” webpage on the North Carolina Board of Nursing website:
Can a nurse be supervised by an unlicensed person or another discipline?
A non-nurse (other than a licensed physician) may not supervise nursing practice but could supervise basic employment issues (i.e., administrative supervision, human resource issues [such as] time, attendance, [and] dress code).
