ARNPEI Standards for Nursing Practice 2016

The 2016 Standards for Nursing Practice document describe the desirable and achievable level of professional conduct expected of each registered nurse (RN) in her/his practice, against which actual performance can be measured.  Standards range from professional-specific standards established by ANPEI to the detailed care standards established by a specific agency.  They address the practice of all nurses irrespective of their area of practice.

The standards of practice for registered nurses:

• provide a guide to the knowledge, skills, judgment and attitudes that are needed to practice safely;
• describe what each nurse is responsible and accountable for in practice;
• represent performance criteria against which the practice of all registered nurses is measured;
• explain nursing's scope of practice to the public and other health care professionals;
• provide direction for the development of nursing programs;
• provide a basis for peer review;
• establish a context for the development of research questions that lead to the improvement of nursing practice and health care; and 
• promote an improved understanding and respect for the varied and complementary nursing roles.
