  • Details

The fifth edition of this topflight text on nurse practitioner role development is completely updated and expanded to encompass the full sphere of current practice roles. These include interprofessional, global health, and leadership roles and such practice issues as credentialing, prescriptive authority, and liabilities.

The book encompasses the diverse expertise of contributors from a wide variety of practice settings and reflects the competencies identified by key stakeholder organizations such as the ANA, NONPF, NACNS, AANA, ACNM, and AACN. With a focus on everyday realities of APRN practice in a rapidly changing health care environment, it delivers essential information on the multifaceted role of APRNs as they transition into practice and professional arenas.

The fifth edition reflects the expanding roles of the DNP and CNL and provides more detail on the transition of APRN master's and doctoral students?±particularly NPs, CNSs, CNMs, and CRNAs?±into practice. It discusses the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on health care delivery and emphasizes the APRN role in influencing health policy. New chapters address global health and differentiated roles for the APRN and APRN leadership in interprofessional teams. The text provides new information on practice issues such as credentialing, prescriptive authority, and liabilities, along with updated web resources. Additionally, the fifth edition includes an enhanced discussion of educational requirements and differentiation from certification and expanded coverage of professional issues and research-based practice (including quantitative and qualitative methodologies). The book continues to provide essential information on advanced clinical decision making, reimbursement, ethical issues, technology, and employment strategies for the APRN..
