Position Statements

Position Statement on Evidence-Based Practice and the Role of the Registered Nurse in Research Activities

Vascular nurses rely on knowledge from the biological, behavioral, physical, and social sciences to make decisions. Vascular nursing knowledge is gained several ways including but not limited to formal education, clinical practice, and research. Research is a scientific process that uses a systematic inquiry to answer questions or solve problems related to vascular nursing. In addition, it validates and refines existing knowledge that directly and indirectly influences clinical vascular nursing practice.

Position Statement on Inclusion of Vascular Disease into Nursing Education

The purpose of this position statement is to articulate the importance of incorporation of in-depth education of vascular disease in schools of nursing, including the undergraduate and graduate programs. In addition to disease specific education, it should include pertinent assessment techniques, diagnostic studies and treatment options.
