- ANA Leadership Institute Competency Model 8/13
- ANA Position Statement on Privacy and Confidentiality
- ANA Position Statement on Professional Role Competence - Reaffirmed 11/14.
The public has a right to expect registered nurses to demonstrate professional competence throughout their careers. ANA believes the registered nurse is individually responsible and accountable for maintaining professional competence. The ANA further believes that it is the nursing profession’s responsibility to shape and guide any process for assuring nurse competence. Regulatory agencies define minimal standards for regulation of practice to protect the public. The employer is responsible and accountable to provide an environment conducive to competent practice. Assurance of competence is the shared responsibility of the profession, individual nurses, professional organizations, credentialing and certification entities, regulatory agencies, employers, and other key stakeholders.
- ANA Position Statement on Abuse of Prescription Drugs - Approved 4/5/91
ANA opposes fraudulent or incompetent prescribing activities by health care providers and the misuse of prescribed drugs by nurses themselves. The association encourages comprehensive pharmacology education for nurses practicing in all settings to ensure safe and appropriate prescription of drugs. The association believes education for nurses with prescription privileges should include, but not be limited to:
(A) Education on the misuse, abuse and addictive potential of prescription drugs.
(B) Vulnerabilities of special populations which place them at higher risk for drug dependence, i.e. newborns, adolescents, preadolescents, elders, and individuals with chronic illnesses, including substance dependency and mental illness.
(C) Legal provisions for accountability of the nurse for assessment, intervention and evaluation in relation to prescription, illicit and legal drugs (alcohol).
(D) Education in prescription practice and management for metabolic altering natural substances such as steroids and growth hormone.
