Identify sources for the creation of standards of nursing practice.. Our units objectives are: Describe the impact on the nursing profession of the Institute of Medicine’s 2010 report on The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health. Identify sources for the creation of standards of nursing practice. Apply standards of practice to appropriate settings. Consider these objectives as you complete your discussion posts, replies and assignments. You have two discussion posts and one paper due this week. Scope of Practice (studied last week) and Standards of Practice are not synonymous, be sure to differentiate between the two. In Discussion 1 you will need to consider scope of practice of RNs in your state/ facility, research how standardized procedures are implemented and discuss change processes to promote a positive transition. In this scenario you are the nurse manager that is considering implementing a standard procedure.
