The American Nurses Association (ANA) is responsible for the contract between society and the nursing profession, including the nursing scope and standards of practice. In 2015, and the American Nurses Association is a workgroup that produced Nursing Scope and Standards of Practice and this association, This Practice, describing nursing care that is in agreement with the preferred values, beliefs, worldview, and practices of the healthcare consumer, honesty, respect, empathy, and sympathy are all traits nurses need to have in order to expand their scope of practices. Furthermore, the (ANA) is an authoritative association that provides information, rules, regulation, a guideline for nurses of the duties that all registered nurses, regardless of role, population, or specialty, are expected to competently perform. ANA is responsible for articulating the social contract between the profession, community, and society(Marion, L., Douglas, M. Marty), Yes I totally agree with this statement lack of knowledge and excellent education can indeed put the patients life’s at risk but not knowing the right way to give treatments, provide cares that can elimination sentient events that can put the patient life at risk for instant medications errors, not knowing side effects of medications, disease, microorganism spread. The failure to educate clients is not the nurses’ fault if it’s not in their scope of practices, patients have the right to educate themselves about certain illnesses, or diseases as well. When a nurse fails to address the patients concern about their medications, side effect, and poor patient teaching it’s the nurse fault because it’s in their scope of practices (Marion, L., Douglas, M. Marty)
Yes the nurse level of educations matter because nursing is a growing field so as a nurse it’s extremely important to keep educating ourself about certain mediations, illness, and other important (ADLs) to be confident and knowledgeable when the patient is confused (Marion, L., Douglas, M. Marty)
