Position Statements

SPN defines a position statement as a statement that is relevant within the current healthcare environment. It clearly and succinctly states our position on a controversial or debatable topic.

The following position statements provide a well-thought-out starting point for advocacy around that particular issue. Use these statements to serve as a reference to support your policy at your institution.

SPN produced and endorsed position statements are researched, written and reviewed by pediatric nurses with specialized expertise in the area of concern. All position statements go through committee and Board of Director review at a minimum of every two years.
