AACN Scope and Standards for Acute Care Clinical Nurse Specialist Practice
Current trends and developments in advanced practice nursing, in association with issues in health care delivery and an aging society, continue to drive the roles and responsibilities of the acute care clinical nurse specialist (CNS). The need has emerged for a provider with unique knowledge, skills, and abilities to manage a patient’s care across the full continuum of acuity and care services from wellness to illness. The acute care CNS in collaboration with his or her acute care NP colleagues is uniquely prepared to fill this need.
The purpose of AACN Scope and Standards for Acute Care Clinical Nurse Specialist Practice is to describe the practice of the acute care CNS, whether trained and certified to care for neonatal, pediatric, or adult-gerontology patients. This purpose is accomplished by describing the Scope of Practice, the Standards of Clinical Practice, and the Standards of Professional Performance.
