The Registered Professional Nurse at Northside Hospital independently plans and provides professional nursing care to patients in accordance with physician orders and established guidelines, and in accordance with the scope of practice as defined by the Georgia Nurse Practice Act. The American Nurses Associations (ANA) Nursing:

Scope and Standards of Nursing Practice, 3rd Edition (2015), provides a definition of nursing as: Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, facilitation of healing, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations. Furthermore, the scope of practice of the registered nurse and the corresponding standards and competencies are dependent on the nurses education, experience, role and population served (ANA, Scope and Standards of Practice, 2015, p 2.). The practice of Professional Nursing at Northside Hospital utilizes ANAs Scope and Standards of Professional Practice and Professional Performance, incorporates two additional components of clinical practice, and classifies all elements into five domains: 1.

Professional Practice Communication, Culturally Congruent Practice, Ethics, Professional Practice Evaluation and Resource Utilization 3. Leadership Collaboration, Community Involvement, Environmental Health and Leadership 4.

A Staff Registered Professional Nurse I develops the integration of bio-psychosocial concepts, cognitive skills, and technically competent practice to provide care to patients and families with basic and/or complex needs.

The Northside Hospital Staff Registered Professional Nurse manages patient care of an assigned group of patients in accordance with the philosophy and policies of the nursing division, including the Nursing Collaborative Care Model. Additionally, the practice of all professional nurses at Northside Hospital reflects the values of collaboration, communication, coordination, integration, and empowerment. Northside Hospital Staff Registered Nurse positions are based on a sequential progression from a novice nurse to an expert.

The job descriptions for Staff Nurse I to VI therefore imply that a nurse who is employed at a specific level possess the knowledge, skills and critical thinking capabilities of all prior (lower) levels. Staff RN I is the entry to practice level for Northside Registered Nurses.
