Canadian Paediatric Nursing Standards

CPNS img.PNGRecognizing the unique dimensions and growing complexity of health care needs of children in Canada and their families, a group of nursing leaders and clinicians from across Canada came together  to develop Canadian-specific paediatric nursing standards which proceed to a two round e-Delphi consensus process.  The standards are aimed to serve as a framework for paediatric nursing delivery across all sectors and to provide consistency in describing expertise and scope of practice of a paediatric nurse. Our next steps for implementation include re-establishing the Canadian Association of Paediatric Nurses (CAPN) in partnership with the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA).  Through the dissemination and implementation of the standards and the revitalized CAPN we are excited about the positive impact nurses will have on the future health and well-being of children in Canada.
