VNAA Nursing Procedure Manual, 2008-2009 Edition

"The manual is the corner stone for all our visiting staff. It provides step by step guidance to staff when performing procedures in the field. It is a resource for staff when performing tasks that are infrequently done, and for staff new to homecare it gives them the basis to evaluate their skills that they've used in the past and gives them direction for the delivery of services in the home." -Toni Sweitzer, Health Care Management's Education Director

Nursing Procedure ManualThe VNAA Nursing Procedure Manual (NPM) is recognized nationally by visiting nurse agencies, home health and hospice agencies as well as accreditation organizations and consultants as the leading procedure manual for home healthcare and hospice.
