Description

This book sheds light on a recurring issue in nursing -- the specialization and credentialing of nurses.

Substantial changes in educational expectations and certification requirements, and the proliferation of nursing specializations have sparked debates on appropriate credentials, scope of practice, and state-by-state regulation of nursing scope of practice.

Specialization and Credentialing in Nursing Revisited offers the profession a unity model and pathway to create a consistent and supported methodology to define specialty and subspecialty practice, as well as a call to action.
