This informative, new 240-page instructional guide is for everyone who currently refers to and utilizes the current editions of Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice (2010), and Nursing’s Social Policy Statement: The Essence of the Profession (2010). These two foundational texts, together with ANA’s other foundational document, ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements, form ANA’s popular Foundation of Nursing Package.

Written by nurse experts from across the profession, this guide will facilitate teaching and instruction in both nursing courses and the professional development activities of hospitals and healthcare organizations.

Each of the 16 Standards of Professional Nursing Practice is presented in its own uniformly structured chapter, each of which provides:

  • The underlying definitions, concepts, processes, and other information necessary for understanding the standard;
  • Applications of the standard in the practice setting of education, administration, quality improvement, and research;
  • One or more case studies and accompanying discussion topics;
  • Power Point presentations* to accompany text; and
  • References and online resources.

Other chapters set the context with discussions of ANA’s scope of nursing practice, the nursing standards as a whole, and nursing’s social policy statement, each with case studies, discussion topics, and Power Point presentations.

In professional practice settings, this instructional guide also offers added value to healthcare facilities that are pursuing excellence. Any facility that encourages and empowers its nursing staff to emphasize autonomy, evidence-based practice, professional ethics, professional practice models, safe workplaces, and quality issues will find a valuable resource in this publication.

In any classroom and practice setting offering professional development, this Guide can serve as a powerful, practical learning tool at any nursing level and setting.
