ICRC Nursing Guidelines

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Nursing Guidelines are designed to provide the direction and guidance necessary to ensure that all hospital staff members delivering nursing care in ICRC-supported hospital projects meet professional standards for high-quality, evidence-based nursing care. These guidelines are based on the latest research and current best practice in nursing care. Much of the information is based on universally accepted guidelines established by the World Health Organization and other recognized health institutions. Owing to a lack of research data on nursing care in low-resource and conflict settings, the ICRC Nursing Guidelines are also based on the long experience of ICRC hospital and health specialists, both in the field and at headquarters, in Geneva.
