The Staffing Principles update is open for public comment

ANA seeks public comment to the proposed Principles update, Principles of Staffing & Workforce Management: The Future of Nursing as Holistic Providers and Advocates of Care .
The deadline for comments is 5 p.m. ET August 17, 2018

Since the original 1999 publication of ANA’s Principles for Nurse Staffing, staffing issues facing the profession have reached multidimensional heights in complexity. ANA believes that the interaction where care is given—the encounter between a nurse and patient/healthcare consumer, family, or community—is where staffing concerns need to be addressed and solutions developed. The Principles document affords a framework to help all nurses address questions about appropriate staffing levels, provide measurable criteria to assess the sufficiency of staffing & skill mix, as well as criteria for evaluating workforce staffing systems
