  • ISBN: 9781558103535
  • PUB# 9781558103535

Originally written in 2001 and then expanded in 2005, this new edition has been updated to reflect the specialty’s continued professional growth and the changes and challenges of education settings.

The Standards of School Nursing Practice and their accompanying competencies describe and measure the expected level of school nursing practice and professional performance. Built on ANA’s Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice (ANA 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 define 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.

While aimed primarily involved in basic and continuing nursing education, School Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice is also 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.
