Abstract: Addressing all major advanced practice nursing competencies, roles, and issues, Advanced Practice Nursing: An Integrative Approach, 5th Edition provides a clear, comprehensive, and current introduction to APN today. It applies APN core competencies to the major APN roles -including the burgeoning Nurse Practitioner role - and covers topics ranging from the evolution of APN to evidence-based practice, leadership, ethical decision-making, and health policy. This edition includes a new chapter on the international development of APN, new and enhanced illustrations, and a colorful new reader-friendly format for improved readability. From internationally known APN experts Ann Hamric, Charlene Hanson, Mary Fran Tracy, and Eileen O'Grady, along with a host of internationally recognized APN contributors, Advanced Practice Nursing introduces you to APN and helps you identify an APN role, develop key competencies for that role, and succeed as an APN. ... EXPANDED international focus includes a NEW International Development of Advanced Practice Nursing chapter that addresses common issues such as the public image and status of APN, dealing with physician resistance, discrepancies in titling, and educational standardization. UPDATED Health Policy chapter covers key U.S. initiatives affecting APN including the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Institute of Medicine's Future of Nursing report, the Consensus Model of APRN Regulation, and how APNs can engage in the political process. Increased interprofessional content emphasizes the subjects of ethics, collaboration, and consultation. Enhanced integration of Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) considerations and literature makes this text ideal for DNP programs.
