How would you critically use research to resolve a discrepancy between professional standards and actual practice observed within your facility? Professional standards describe the acceptable level of competent care and provide the parameters for which performance can be compared. They ensure that nurses are accountable for the decisions and actions made in the clinical setting by guiding practices and providing the framework for competency checklists and evaluations. The main purpose of professional standards in nursing is to maintain a clinically competent practice (Davis, 2014, p. 4). It is important to note that professional standards and clinical practice guidelines are often used interchangeably but are not exactly the same. The standards of practice set forth by the American Nurses Association follow the steps of the nursing process and include a description of the standard as well as the competencies that can be evaluated to ensure compliance of the standard.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
