498 Advancing the Specialty: The Benefit of A Nursing Framework

Because the correctional environment is highly focused on security and professional practice, adherence to nursing standards and scope of practice are often less emphasized and receive limited attention. A nursing framework will strengthen nursing practice and support nurses and nurse leaders in in articulating the role of nursing and its relationship to patient care. The framework will guide professional nursing practice and improve the health outcomes of our patients. This presentation will inform health administrators, nurses, and correctional leaders on the benefit of a proposed correctional nursing framework.
