Community Health Nursing Standards Toolkit - Binder Set

The Community Health Nurses Association of Canada ( CHNAC), a federation of provincial/territorial community health nursing interest groups and members, released the Canadian Community Health Nursing (CCHN) Standards of Practice in May 2003. These Standards were accepted by the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA), leading to Community Health Nursing being recognized as a specialized field of nursing. The CCHN Standards Toolkit provides a process, tools and resources for raising awareness of the Standards and facilitating their use. It will be most effective if used as a whole. By building on and adapting existing organizational structures and practices the Toolkit aims to create an environment in which nurses are encouraged and supported to attain and maintain continuing competence. The Toolkit is also available in French.
