ANA Publishes Newly Revised Public Health Nursing Standards

Silver Spring, MD - Nursesbooks.org, the publishing program of ANA has just released Public Health Nursing: Scope & Standards of Practice. This book articulates the essentials of public health nursing, its activities and accountabilities - the who, what, when, where, and how of practice - at all practice levels and settings.

It is a core resource for the nurses who focus their professional life in this area. The standards themselves - six for nursing practice and ten for nursing professional performance - are those by which all public health nurses practice. In the context of each standard's set of measurement criteria, these reflect the values and priorities of the practice specialty. The book's summary discussion of the scope of such practice - its characteristics, development, education and training, its practice environments and settings, its general and specialized practice roles - lends the broadest context for understanding and using these standards.

While this book is primarily for practicing nurses, it is also an essential resource for others in related healthcare work.
