    re cost of the standards: all professional organizations have standards against which the profession is judged. think of it as your hospital, facility's or agency's policy and procedure manual, which if deviated from, a person may be disciplined or used as basis of a lawsuit for not meeting standards of care. the need for periodic committee review and publishing is what determines the price. an individual nurses needs to be aware of the general standards (above) and the standards for their practice setting. individual standard cost is $14.95 for nonmembers/sna members $11.95. this is a 32 page booklet.

    the 24-title set of ana's nursing standards (each a multipage booklet) contains the standards of clinical nursing practice (2nd edition), plus one each of the current standards in 22 other areas of nursing practice cost $320/sna members $250.00.
