Scopes & Standards

There are 40 titles included in the "Scopes and Standards" series for the various nursing specialties. These titles may be found in the Reference Collection (main floor, east side of the Learning Commons/Riley Library), thus making them available to everyone. Electronic copies are not offered by the publisher and although you may find excerpts online, you will not find them in full text on any website. A complete list of the titles is provided through the link below. The call number (where you can find the item on the shelf) is also included.
