This newly released publication is an updated scope of practice statement and 17 revised standards for the clinical and administrative professional practice of ambulatory care registered nurses (RNs). The standards promote effective clinical and administrative management of increasingly complex ambulatory care RN roles and responsibilities in a changing healthcare environment.
The 10th edition of the Scope and Standards of Practice for Professional Ambulatory Care Nursing contains some significant revisions from previous versions. In addition to the revised scope of practice, this publication contains 17 standards. The first six standards address the phases of the nursing process; the last 11 standards address professional performance.
These changes offer clarification and specificity for the distinct domains of clinical and administrative nursing practice in ambulatory care settings.
