Radiologic and Imaging Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice

Paperback / softback
This new edition contains up-to-date information on this exciting and dynamic specialty that combines cutting-edge technology with the art and science of nursing. It builds upon the previously-published Radiology Nursing, published in 2004, by incorporating the broader practice environment that nurses working in this specialty are encountering in their nursing practice. It guides and supports the imaging APN's practice from assessment and diagnosis through treatment and evaluation, with emphasis on maintaining a safe environment. The 16 standards are those by which all RNs in radiologic and imaging nursing are held accountable for in their practice. Each standard is measurable by a set of specific competencies that serve as evidence of minimal compliance with that standard. Radiologic and Imaging Nursing is a must-have title for radiologic and imaging nursing practitioners, educators, students, and other healthcare works directly involved in this area of practice. Co-published with the Association for Radiologic and Imaging Nursing and ANA.
