View Comments (0)Print ArticleEmail Article

The American Nurses Association has released revised standards for both holistic and neuroscience nurses.  

Co-published by the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA) and ANA, Holistic Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition contains up-to-date information on this growing specialty.

According to ANHA and ANA, the publication addresses the expectations of all holistic registered nurses. It specifies the, who, what, where, when, why, and how of holistic nursing practice.

The 16 standards are those by which all RNs in holistic nursing are held accountable for their practice. Each standard is measurable by a set of specific competencies that serve as evidence of minimal compliance with that standard. A selection of key AHNA documents supplements the main text.

Although primarily for holistic nursing practitioners, educators, students, and others directly involved in holistic nursing, research, advocacy, and certification, this book can also inform other healthcare providers, researchers and scholars as well as employers, insurers, lawyers, regulators, policy makers, and stakeholders.

Co-published with American Association of Neuroscience Nurses (AANN), Neuroscience Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition guides RNs in this specialty through the essentials of neuroscience nursing and provides a framework for practice at all levels and settings. According to ANA and AANN, it reflects the most current thinking in the specialty and offers a blueprint for neuroscience nursing philosophy, principles and practices.

Like the revised standards for holistic nurses, the 16 standards are those by which all RNs in neuroscience 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.

Although primarily for neuroscience nursing practitioners, educators, students, and others directly involved in nursing care, research, advocacy, and certification; this book can also inform other healthcare providers, researchers and scholars as well as employers, insurers, lawyers, regulators, policy makers, and stakeholders. .

Both books are available for purchase the www.nursesbooks.org, the publishing arm of the ANA.
