ARIN Core Curriculum - The Core Curriculum is a “must have resource” if you are preparing for CRN® certification. Capturing the basic knowledge needed to be a competent radiology nurse, this publication is a quality product that will be useful not only for radiology nurses but for other nurses and healthcare professionals who are seeking information about procedures and imaging.
Orientation Manual for Radiologic and Imaging Nursing - Historically, our radiology nurse colleagues walked into their respective imaging departments not fully understanding their new role or how to make it a reality. Very few nurses had a formal introduction into radiology; rather, nurses began to apply our skills in this technology dominated world as we identified the need.
Radiologic & Imaging Nursing: Scope & Standards of Practice - Co-published by ARIN and ANA, Scope and Standards of Practice is a must-have title for radiologic and imaging nursing practitioners, educators, students, and other healthcare workers directly involved in this area of practice.
