Helps nurses understand the definitions, standards, rules, and regulations involved with specialization, credentialing, and certification in the field of nursing.
This book leverages American Nurses Association’s long history of leading the profession in the areas of specialization and credentialing, as well as in the creation and ongoing implementation of the Consensus Model for APRN Regulation.
Updating and building on ANA’s Specialization and Credentialing in Nursing Revisited: Understanding the Issues, Advancing the Profession published in 2008—which presented a unity model for the specialization and credentialing of nurses, with a focus on APRNs—this new ANA publication will examine the constant changes in educational expectations and certification requirements.
The book guides you through the APRN Consensus Model and help you effectively implement it.
