The ANA’s Scope and Standards of Practice establish that nurses engage in self-reflection of professional knowledge (Standard 16), participate in continual professional development (Standard 13), and participate in professional activities and organizations for professional growth and influence (Standard 12). One way to meet these standards is to become a member of professional organizations.
- Standard 12: Leadership – The registered nurse leads within the profession and practice setting.
- Standard 13: Education – The registered nurse seeks knowledge and competence that reflects current nursing practice and promotes futuristic thinking.
- Standard 16: Professional Practice Evaluation – The registered nurse evaluates one’s own and others’ nursing practice.
