Nursing Procedures

Looking for procedures for your ambulatory care practice?

The American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN) partners with Wolters Kluwer/Lippincott Solutions to develop and periodically review the ambulatory care nursing category for Lippincott Procedures. This resource is a web-based, point-of-care nursing application for the latest evidence-based practice information used in hospitals and now ambulatory care facilities. 

The ambulatory care procedures expand the Lippincott Procedures suite in the growing area of outpatient healthcare. They are useful to nurses who practice in settings such as hospitals with outpatient services, ambulatory care centers, community-based settings, urgent care clinics, schools and workplaces.

Clinicians receive accurate, step-by-step guidance for more than 1,700 evidence-based procedures. This resource is available as a group subscription to hospitals and other ambulatory care facilities.
