Staffing Standards by Scope, Ratios, and Acuity: Promoting safe patient care standards at the bedside and beyond (Florida)

Course Description:

This class examines RN professional practice and patient advocacy role and responsibilities; analyzes the effectiveness of safe staffing standards based on individual patient acuity with RN ratios as the minimum; and addresses mechanisms through which RNs can build strong organizations to secure RN control over professional practice in acute care settings. In addition we will examine industry trends that impact nursing practice and various policy proposals that influence the role of the registered nurse in acute care. We will discuss and identify strategies that ensure safe patient care standards including safe staffing assignments, safe delegation practices, and the importance of RN professional judgment in protecting patient safety.
