Scope and Standards of Practice for APN and RN Nurses
Palliative Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice — An Essential Resource for Hospice and Palliative Nurses (for both APN and RN), 2014
Edited by Constance M. Dahlin APRN-BC, ACHPN®, FPCN, FAAN and Dena Jean Sutermaster, RN, MSN, CHPN®
The new Palliative Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice — An Essential Resource for Hospice and Palliative Nurses addresses what is expected of all palliative nurses by specifying the who, what, where, when, why, and how of their practice. The detailed discussion of that scope of practice gives the context—the underlying assumptions, characteristics, environments and settings, education and training requirements, key issues and trends, and ethical and conceptual bases of the specialty—needed to understand and use the palliative nursing standards of practice. All palliative nurses are held accountable to the 16 standards, which provide a framework for evaluating outcomes, goals, and their specialty practice. The set of specific competencies accompanying each standard serves as evidence of minimal compliance with that standard. Additional competencies are listed for advanced practice nurses.
