The American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) and the American Nurses Association (ANA) are seeking public comments on the following revised draft publication: Diabetes Nursing: Scope & Standards of Practice.
AADE provides information in this document on the scope of practice for all diabetes registered nurses, as well as the standards of practice to which they as practicing professionals are held. This draft is a revision of the previous 2003 edition and was created by a group of diabetes nurse experts. There have been some significant changes, including the incorporation of competency statements in the place of measurement criteria under the standards section, and an expanded list of standards of practice.
If you are interested in participating in this review, download the document and submit your comments online (see below) by 5:00pm EST on April 23, 2010. If you have questions e-mail Carol J. Bickford, PhD, RN-BC, ANA Department of Nursing Practice and Policy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ANA appreciates your assistance with reviewing this important document.
