How do i access the scenes width and height in a class which is a subclass of NSObject or SKSpriteNode etc...

Here i have some code thats in side a class thats a subclass of SKSpriteNode and i can't access the screens width and heigh because the class is not a subclass of SKScene how do i access the screens dimensions in a different class to SKScene?....

@implementation Node
+(instancetype) createNode{

    SKSpriteNode *node= [SKSpriteNode spriteNodeWithColor:[SKColor redColor] size:CGSizeMake(100, 100)];
//the values in the position are invalid??
    node.position = CGPointMake(self.frame.size.width, self.frame.size.height);
