The Nurse Practice Act and Nurse Life Care Planning
At VP Medical Consulting we believe nurses are best suited for Life Care Planning. Nursing is a scientific discipline and profession that requires highly skilled detail oriented people who take their job seriously. Registered nurses employ critical thinking to integrate objective data with knowledge gained from an assessment of the subjective experiences of patients. Registered nurses use this critical thinking process to apply the best available evidence and research data to the processes of diagnosis and treatment. Nurses continually evaluate quality and effectiveness of nursing practice and seek to optimize outcomes.
Registered Nurse Life Care Planners are governed by the Scope and Standards outlined in the Nurse Practice Act. The Nursing Scope and Standards of Practice delineates the professional responsibilities of all professional registered nurses engaged in nursing practice, regardless of the setting.
