Description

Gerontology Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition covers the full extent of gerontology nursing practice needs in any setting or role and at any level of influence and authority.

This specialty’s core accountabilities illustrate that depth and breadth of practice:

  • Safety, quality, and risk management
  • Patient and population health advocacy
  • Clinical care delivery and optimal patient outcomes
  • Healthy work environments
  • Strategic, financial, and human resource management
  • Legal and regulatory compliance
  • Networking, partnering, and collaborating
  • Accountability/advocacy for their employees

    The publication also addresses 17 updated national standards, which offer a framework for evaluating practice outcomes and goals, as well as for what is expected of all gerontology nurses, and its scope of practice specifies the who, what, where, when, why, and how of their practice.

    This new book is a must-have for the aspiring or practicing gerontology nurse, or any registered nurse.
