Call for Public Comment - Nursing: Scope & Standards of Practice

m Bookmark and Share
The American Nurses Association (ANA) is seeking comments on the following revised publication: Nursing: Scope & Standards of Practice, Second Edition

ANA provides information in this document on the scope of practice for all registered nurses, as well as the standards to which they as practicing professionals are held. This document represents one of the three foundational documents for nursing practice, and this draft has undergone revision by a group of nurse experts from the previous 2004 edition. There have been some significant changes, including the incorporation of competency statements in the place of measurement criteria under the standards section, and an expanded list of standards of practice.

If you are interested in participating in this review, download the document and submit your comments online (see below) by 5:00pm EST on March, 12, 2010. If you have questions e-mail Katie Brewer, MSN, RN, ANA Department of Nursing Practice and Policy at

ANA appreciates your assistance with reviewing this important document.
