This publication guides RNs through the essentials of neuroscience nursing and provides a framework for practice at all levels and settings.

Co-published with American Association of Neuroscience Nurses, it reflects the most current thinking in the specialty and offers a blueprint for neuroscience nursing philosophy, principles, and practices.

This go-to guide contains the most up-to-date information on this practice specialty. It specifies the who, what, where, when, why, and how of neuroscience nursing practice. 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.
