The research utilized a Mixed Method (quantitative and qualitative) approach.

A questionnaire was used as the major instrument in gathering data. The tool was formulated with the aid of different related literature and undergone face and constructs validity. The answers from the questionnaire were tallied and underwent statistical treatment with the use of tables, frequency distribution, percentage, and t - test. For the qualitative approach, the researcher utilized a purposive selection to identify four (4) key informants. An aid memoir was constructed guided by the central question; "How would the junior and senior nurses perceive the importance and essence of delegation in critical care setting based on their experience?" The key informants were tasked to submit a written protocol. Thematic Network Analysis was done to expound the importance of task delegation in critical care settings based on the respondent's experiences.
