AANN Clinical Practice Guideline Series

The aim of the AANN Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) series, created by the CPG Editorial Board, is to provide an overview on caring for a specific patient population as well as to provide nurses with a tool that will assist them in delivering the optimum quality-focused patient care. Please print these guides for your reference and share them with colleagues.

All AANN CPGs are available for free through the AANN online store. Once you have “purchased” a CPG, you can access it at any time through your account in Downloads.

Some CPGs have associated webinars or continuing education (CE) credit exams available. To complete an online CE, select the exam below and purchase it (free to members), then access it in your account under “My Evaluations.” You will then see the CE exam and can take the exam by clicking the "Evaluate" button. For further instructions or to learn more about the CPG CE exams, visit the CPG CE page.
