188 pages2 hours


Last published in 2004, this new second edition contains up-to-date information for practitioners committed to providing a continuum of services to individuals with ID/D across the lifespan. This comprehensive contemporary guide summarizes the specialty’s inter-professional expertise and specifies the, who, what, where, when, why, and how of ID/D nursing practice.
The 16 standards are those by which all RNs in ID/D nursing are held accountable for their practice. Each standard is measurable by a set of specific competencies that serve as evidence of minimal compliance with that standard.
This is a must-have title for ID/D nursing practitioners, educators, students, and others in the nursing profession.
