Co-published with the Society for Vascular Nursing and the American Nurses Association

Completely updated by vascular nurses for vascular nurses. The first best resource for the RN or APRN vascular nurse at any level and in any setting. Essential for all involved in vascular nursing practice now and throughout this decade.

The vascular nurse focuses on the needs and care of individuals and their families with known or at risk for vascular disease. This includes patient education, health promotion, care management, assessment for alterations of function, and strategies to help patients maintain, regain, and improve function and prevent disability. Vascular nurses also engage in research, policy, emerging healthcare delivery issues and technologies, and promoting community awareness of vascular disease and dysfunction to encourage early detection and prevention. This book can guide all aspects of their practice.

A workgroup of vascular nurse experts, convened by SVN and ANA, completely updated and expanded the previous edition. With input from nurses nationwide, their revision addressed and incorporated ongoing and anticipated changes in vascular nursing as well as in nursing and health care in general.

The revised scope of vascular nursing practice – the who, what, where, when, why, and how of practice – sets the context for understanding and using the standards: the underlying assumptions, characteristics, environments and settings, education and training requirements, key issues and trends, and ethical and conceptual bases of vascular nursing.

The updated 16 standards frame any evaluation of the outcomes and goals of, and measure the accountabilities for, general and advanced practice vascular nurses. By meeting each standard’s competencies, the vascular nurse can demonstrate compliance with that standard.

A foundational volume primarily for those directly involved with vascular nursing practice, education, and research, other nurses and allied healthcare providers, researchers, and scholars will find value in its content.
