The AAACN vision of telehealth nursing practice (TNP) has expanded from the initial telephone triage to telehealth nursing to accommodate changes in practice.
However, telephone triage remains a current and significant form of telehealth nursing as it is practiced today.
Even with the rapidly increasing use of other technology, the discussion content of our telehealth community clearly demonstrates a priority focus on telephone triage.
A AAACN Task Force is in the process of updating and revising content from member Carol Rutenberg’s highly-regarded telephone triage seminar and developing AAACN’s own online telephone triage nursing course.
The completed Telephone Triage Course will provide in-depth and comprehensive education in telephone triage through the AAACN Online Library.
The completed Course is expected to be available for purchase in 2021.
