Practice Support Tool Profile this Month
Wound Care Position Statement
Nurses are accountable to use evidence informed practices, equipment and clinical decision support tools in the prevention and management of wounds. We developed this position statement to communicate the NSCN position on the role of the nurse in the prevention and management of wounds as it relates to the nurse’s scope of practice, the development and maintenance of the nursing care plan and collaboration.
Our practice support tools (previously known as documents, publications and/or resources) are organized alphabetically by topic. Click on a topic that interests you to access a variety of helpful tools on the topic, such as practice guidelines, Q&As and more. Some topics also include designation-specific tools relevant to the nurse’s individual scope of practice.
