HIV/AIDS Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice articulates the essentials of the HIV nursing specialty at all practice levels and settings. It is a core resource for the nurses who have chosen to focus their professional life in this arena.
ANAC and the American Nurses Association co-published this important publication. The standards themselves--six for nursing practice and nine for nursing professional performance--are those by which all HIV/IADS nurses practice. These, and each standard's set of measurement criteria, reflect the values and priorities of this specialty. The book's detailed discusion of the scope of such practice--its characteristics, development, education and training, its practice environments and settings, its special populations, its general and specialized practice roles--lends a broad context for better understanding and using these standards.
