Public health nurses focus on population health through continuous surveillance and assessment of multiple health determinants to promote health and wellness, prevent disease, disability and premature death, and improve the quality of life. These RNs address population health priorities through identifying, implementing, and evaluating universal and targeted evidence-based programs and services that provide primary, secondary, and tertiary preventive interventions. Public health nursing practice emphasizes primary prevention with the goal of achieving health equity. The American Nurses Association convened a workgroup of nurse experts to create a definitive resource that addresses the interrelated issues of professional accountability, autonomy, and responsibilities of the public health nurse. With input from across the nursing profession, the workgroup developed Public Health Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition. This comprehensive, up-to-date delineation of the competent level of nursing practice and professional performance of public health nurses applies in all practice levels and settings. The publication's scope of practice addresses what is expected of all public health nurses by specifying the who, what, where, when, why, and how of their practice. The detailed discussion of that scope of practice gives the context-the underlying assumptions, characteristics, environments and settings, education and training requirements, key issues and trends, and ethical and conceptual bases of the specialty-needed to understand and use the public health nursing standards of practice. All public health nurses are held accountable to these 17 standards, which provide a framework for evaluating outcomes, goals, and their specialty practice. The set of specific competencies accompanying each standard serves as evidence of minimal compliance with that standard. While this foundational volume is primarily for those directly involved with public health nursing practice, education, and research, other nursing and allied healthcare provides, researchers, and scholars will find value in this content. In addition, it is a resource for employers, insures, lawyers, regulators, policy makers, and stakeholders. About ANA's Specialty Nursing Standards Since the late 1990s, ANA has partnered with other nursing organizations to establish a formal process for recognition of specialty areas of nursing practice. This includes the criteria for approving the specialty itself and the scope statement and an acknowledgment by ANA of the standards of practice for that specialty. Because of the significant changes in the evolving nursing and healthcare environments, ANA's approval of specialty nursing scope statements and its acknowledgment of specialty standards of practice remain valid for five years, starting from the publication date of the documents. The standards in this publication are based on language from ANA's Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, Second Edition, a helpful supplement to this specialty text, which in turn is of optimal use with two complementary ANA texts: Nursing's Social Policy Statement The Essence of the Profession and Guide to the Code of Ethics for Nurses: interpretation and-Application. These three books are also available as a set, ANA's Foundation of Nursing Package, to guide nursing practice, thinking, and decision-making. The set is proving useful as a professional reference.
