Canadian Community Health Nursing Professional Practice Model & Standards of Practice
Building on the original 2003 Canadian Community Health Nursing Standards of Practice, this new publication will inspire excellence and commitment to community nursing practice and will support learning and professional development. Written by Canadian community health nurses and experts from all practice areas, this new document defines the practice of a registered nurse in the specialty area of community health nursing and provides a guide for CHNs and their employers to evaluate their practice.
The publication features:
a) A 13 component professional practice model that describes the structure, process and values that support the community health nurse's control over the delivery of nursing care and the environment in which care is delivered.
b) 7 standards of practice that represent a vision for excellence in community health nursing. The Standards of Practice also provide a foundation for national certification and research in community health nursing.
