The standards of Professional Nursing Practice are a set of standards put into place through nursing organizations, states boards, education institutions, and other agencies as expectations of how a registered nurse is to perform competently regardless of role. “The scope of Nursing Practice describes the “who”, “what”, “where”, “why”, and “how” of nursing practice” (ANA, 2010).

The process is outlined or coincides with the steps of the nursing process. These steps include assessment, diagnosis, identification of outcomes, planning, implementation, and evaluation (ANA, 2010). Each step is addressed during the process. The standards are set through research, surveys, practice, and patient or process outcomes.

There are also “nine specific standards that describe the level of competence required in the role of the professional nurse” (GCU, 2011). These nine standards are quality of practice, education, Professional practice evaluation, collegiality, collaboration, ethics, research, resource utilization, and leadership (ANA, 2010).

Something that I have noticed is that every article that I have read on this subject emphasizes the nurse’s ability to think critically, act morally, and practice ethically within the standards that are set by our practice itself.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
