More About This Textbook


ANA and the American College of Cardiology Foundation convened an array of cardiovascular health experts to develop this succinct and practical guide. This completely updated document is unique, in fact, as a unifying effort due to participation and contribution of 16 nursing organizations whose constituency includes cardiovascular nurses. Reflecting the cumulative work of three previous iterations (and including their content), this book is a foundational volume. It articulates the essentials of the specialty, its accountabilities and activities - the who, what, when, where, and how of its practice - for both specialists and generalists. The standards themselves - six for nursing practice and nine for nursing professional performance - are those by which all nurses in this specialty practice. Together, along with each standard's set of measurement criteria, these reflect the perspectives and priorities of cardiovascular nursing. The book's summary discussion of the scope of such practice - its characteristics, development and trends, education and training, its practice environments and settings, its general and specialized practice roles, its ethical and conceptual bases - lends a broad context for understanding and using these standards. While Cardiovascular Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice is a reference and guide primarily for practicing nurses and nursing faculty and students, it is also an essential source document for other cardiovascular specialists, healthcare providers, researchers, and scholars, along with those involved in funding, legal, policy, and regulatory activities.
