Procedures in allergy nursing play a critical role in the process of improving practical nursing skills. A nurse’s diagnosis and treatment work as regards skin prick tests and allergen-specific immunotherapy is an essential part of nursing work with patients suffering from allergic diseases, which – according to statistics – are becoming epidemic in nature, with allergy being referred to as a disease of the 21st century. The special value of this study is that it proposes certain procedures that should be adhered to at the time of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic threat. Procedures in allergy nursing play a major role in ensuring the accuracy of all nursing work, which involves skin prick tests and allergen-specific immunotherapy in this case. If such procedures are adhered to, they allow for eliminating medical errors, which may result in adverse events on more than one occasion. At a time when people are exposed to SARS-CoV-2 infection and other pathogens, the procedures are critical to ensuring the safety of nurses and their patients. This is the first such study prepared as a precise, step-by-step description of the rules of the work of allergy nurses. Diagnosis and treatment in the area of allergy nursing should be promoted widely and provided in accordance with accepted procedures.
