In 1988, the Association of Pediatric Oncology Nurses published its first Scope of Practice Statement. At that time the Standards of Practice were revised in the process outcome format. Six standards refer to direct care of the child and family and a final standard refers to the nurse's professional responsibility to maintain expertise as a specialist or competency as a generalist. The development of these two documents and how they are used by the practitioner and the educator is discussed.
