School Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice 2nd Edition
Building on decades of collaboration, the National Association of School Nurses and the American Nurses Association again have published the premier one-volume guide to contemporary school nursing. The Standards of School Nursing Practice and their accompanying competencies describe and measure the expected level of school nursing practice and professional performance. Based on ANA’s Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice (2010) for all registered nurses, these standards are authoritative statements of the duties that school nurses should competently perform. Composed of two sets—the Standards of Practice and the Standards of Professional Performance—these standards delineate how outcomes for school nurse activities can be measured.
Also included in this book is a detailed statement on the scope of school nursing practice. This discussion describes the context of this specialty practice, effectively answering the essential questions: the who, what, where, when, why and how of school nursing practice. Beyond school nurses, this book is an essential resource for others in related health care, including other care providers, researchers and scholars, and those involved in funding, legal, policy, and regulatory activities. (2011) 172 pages.
