As the profession of nursing evolves, standards must evolve as well, continuing to reinforce and build upon the foundation of nursing practice. This new edition of the Nephrology Nursing Scope and Standards of Practice has been expanded to include a definition of nephrology nursing, trends and opportunities, and the future of nephrology nursing. It serves as a guide in identifying nephrology nurses’ responsibilities to their profession, their colleagues, and the patient. New features include examples of tools and forms to use in the application of Standards and Process into clinical practice, a glossary and expanded reference section, and an appendix with selected ANNA position statements and principles of a healthful practice and work environment.
