To help advanced practice nurses (nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists) improve patient care delivery and optimize outcomes for renal patients, ANNA has released the 2008 edition of the Scope and Standards of Advanced Practice in Nephrology Nursing. This valuable resource also serves as a reference for nurses, physicians, and the nephrology community at large regarding the role of advanced practice nurses in nephrology. The Scope and Standards is $15, with an ANNA member-discounted price of $10. The new edition is available for purchase in ANNA's Online Store.
