The premier resource for today's nurse administrator, Nursing Administration: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition is informed by ongoing advances in health care, professional nursing, and organizational and administrative management. It covers all aspects of a nurse administrator's practice in any setting or role and at any level of influence and authority.

Topics discussed include core role accountabilities, role qualifications (including certification and education), and ethics of this nursing specialty, as well as the issues, opportunities and trends that every nurse administrator must know. The core accountabilities alone illustrate the depth and breadth of nursing administration practice:

  • Accountability and advocacy for employees
  • Clinical care delivery and optimal patient outcomes
  • Healthy work environments
  • Legal and regulatory compliance
  • Networking, partnering and collaborating
  • Patient and population health advocacy
  • Safety, quality and risk management
  • Strategic, financial and human resource management

The publication's 17 competency-based standards will help in evaluating practice outcomes and goals and delineating what is expected of all nurse administrators. Its scope of practice—the who, what, where, when, why, and how of their practice—is the context for these standards.

Nursing Administration: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition is a professional development must-have for the practicing or aspiring nurse administrator or nurse executive, or any registered nurse or nursing student.

About ANA's Specialty Nursing Standards

Since the late 1990s, ANA has partnered with other nursing organizations to establish a formal process for recognition of specialty areas of nursing practice. This includes the criteria for approving the specialty itself and the scope statement, and an acknowledgment by ANA of the standards of practice for that specialty. Because of the significant changes in the evolving nursing and health care environments, ANA's approval of specialty nursing scope statements and its acknowledgment of specialty standards of practice remain valid for five years, starting from the publication date of the documents.

The standards in this publication are based on language from ANA's Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, Third Edition, a helpful supplement to this specialty text, which in turn is of optimal use with two complementary ANA texts: Guide to Nursing's Social Policy Statement and Guide to the Code of Ethics for Nurses. Together (available as the Essentials of Nursing Practice Package), these three books help guide nursing practice, thinking and decision-making. The set is proving useful as a professional reference, classroom textbook, in-service training guide and credentialing exam resource.
