Recommendations to Optimize Antibiotic Use among Nurses

Nurse assisting a patient

Nurses are a cornerstone of quality patient care. Because they work around the clock in a variety of healthcare settings, they’re able to significantly impact patient safety through improved antibiotic use.
The American Nurses Association (ANA) recently released a white paper outlining how nurses can optimize antibiotic use and provide safer, better patient care. The white paper focuses on nurses’ role in antibiotic stewardship efforts in four key areas:
  • How bedside nurses can improve antibiotic use 
  • How to improve nurses’ participation in antibiotic use activities – at both national and hospital levels 
  • Education and training for nurses 
  • How to engage nursing leaders in antibiotic stewardship efforts
