Does anyone know where I can find Nursing Standards of Care for all nursing specialties without having to purchase different books related to each specialty? Ideally, I am wondering if there is a website that lists all Nursing Standards of care, for each and every area of nursing, that is easily accessible and does not charge a fee to access it.
Thanks for any and all leads.

Do a search on Nursing Standards of Care on a search engine. I came up with a lot.

I know; that's the problem. I went on google, typed in "nursing Standards of Care," and came up with 243 sites or something, all very specific to single specialties. Isn't there a single site or database that has basic national standards or guidlines for each GENERAL specialty (i.e., med-surg, ICU, ER, L&D etc.)--that apply to ALL nurses, not state by state? Maybe ANA has something; I'll check there next.
