The American Nurses Association worked together with nurses from across the nursing profession to develop Public Health Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 3rd Edition. It is the definitive and up-to-date delineation of public health nursing, articulating the competent level of nursing practice and professional performance of all public health registered nurses, whatever their practice level or setting. The publication's scope of practice addresses what is expected of all public health nurses, specifying the who, what, where, when, why, and how of their practice. The detailed discussion of that scope of practice provides the context needed to understand and use the standards, presenting the underlying assumptions, characteristics, environments and settings, education and training requirements, key issues and trends, and ethical and conceptual bases of the specialty.
