The American Nurses Association s Nursing s Social Policy Statement: The Essence of the Profession (ANA, 2010, p. 3) provides the definition of nursing as: Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations. The scope of practice of the registered nurse and the corresponding standards and competencies are dependent on the nurse s education, experience, role and population served (ANA, Scope of Practice & Standards, 2010, p. 2). The practice of professional nursing at Northside Hospital includes the domains of Professional Nursing Practice and Professional Nursing Performance. Practice components within the Professional Nursing Practice domain include assessment, diagnosis, outcomes identification, planning, implementation and coordination of care, and evaluation; and those within the Professional Nursing Performance are ethics, education, evidence-based practice and research, quality of practice, communication, leadership, collaboration, professional practice evaluation, resource utilization, and environmental health (ANA, 2010).
