The American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN) stipulates in its scope and standards of practice that ambulatory care registered nurses must attain knowledge and competency that reflect current ambulatory care nursing practice. Competency is a team effort in which each staff member is responsible for building and maintaining his or her own competence using resources provided by the organization, preceptors, and nurse educators, and through self-study.
The Ambulatory Care Nursing Orientation and Competency Assessment Guide, 3rd Edition, serves as a valuable resource that provides organizations and staff educators guidance in developing orientation programs and comprehensive competency assessment programs for staff working in ambulatory care settings.
