The National Association of Neonatal Nurses and the American Nurses
Association have released a new second edition of Neonatal Nursing:Scope and Standards of Practice
. This concise guide to contemporary neonatal
practice contains up-to-date information for RNs practicing in this nursing
specialty and defines the level of nursing practice and professional performance
for neonatal nurses at all practice levels and in all settings
The 16 standards are those by which all RNs in neonatal nursing are held accountable for in their practice. Each standard is measurable by a set of specific competencies that serve as evidence of minimal compliance with that standard.
Neonatal Nursing:Scope and Standards of Practice is a must-have title for neonatal nursing practitioners, educators, students, and others directly involved in the nursing profession. Other healthcare providers, researchers and scholars as well as employers, insurers, lawyers, regulators, policy makers, and stakeholders will find value in referencing this publication.
