In addition to the three recently added American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN) titles to the STAT!Ref platform, we are excited to announce we now also offer Scope and Standards of Practice for Professional Telehealth Nursing. As the nurse’s role in telehealth has increased and the number of school-based telehealth programs continues to grow, this resource is imperative to have in your nursing health e-library. Please contact us here to add this to your subscription today, or see below to learn more.
Scope and Standards of Practice for Professional Telehealth Nursing, 5th edition provides scope and practice guidance specific to the ambulatory subspecialty of telehealth. The Standards promote effective clinical and administrative management of the increasingly complex telehealth nursing roles and responsibilities in a changing health care environment. Sixteen standards are included along with competencies for telehealth registered nurses, nurse executives, administrators, and managers. The Standards reflect current professional norms, practices, and expectations.
This publication can be used as a tool to advance ambulatory care professional nursing practice, patient health, and the performance outcomes of telehealth institutions. This resource is ideal for writing policies, procedures, and job descriptions; orienting staff; planning for Joint Commission surveys; and increasing the quality and safety of patient care. You can also use the Standards to prepare for the ambulatory care nursing certification exam, which contains questions on telehealth nursing and is the recommended exam to validate telehealth nursing knowledge.
Purchasers of this title will greatly benefit from bundling this resource with Telehealth Nursing Practice Essentials, Ambulatory Care Nursing Orientation and Competency Assessment Guide, Handbook of Informatics for Nurses and Healthcare Professionals, Ambulatory Care Procedures for the Nurse Practitioner and Lippincott’s Nursing Procedures.
