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, 2014
The Palliative Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice — An Essential Resource for Hospice and Palliative Nurses defines the specialty of palliative nursing for registered nurses and advanced practice nurses by delineating the who, what, where, when, why, and how of their practice. The detailed discussion of scope of palliative nursing practice provides the essential 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. Palliative nurses within all populations and settings are held accountable to the 16 standards, which provide a framework for evaluating outcomes, and goals. The set of specific competencies accompanying each standard serves as evidence of minimal compliance with that standard.
