7 The Nurse Practice Act  Authorizes APRN practice  Licensed as RN  Current certification on APRN Registry  APRN is independently accountable for practice  Language is very broadly written  Does not detail specifics of scope of practice  Look to professional bodies, certification organizations, ANA Standards, etc

8 Definition “Advanced practice registered nurse, abbreviated APRN, means an individual licensed as a registered nurse by the board and certified by a national nurse certification organization acceptable to the board to practice as a: cclinical nurse specialist, nnurse anesthetist, nnurse-midwife, or nnurse practitioner Minnesota statutes, section 148.171, subd 3

10 Definition Continued The APRN must practice within a health care system that provides for:  consultation,  collaborative management, and  referral Minnesota statutes, section 148.171, subd. 13

11 CNP Practice …means, within the context of collaborative management: (1) diagnosing, directly managing, and preventing acute and chronic illness and disease; and (2) promoting wellness, including providing nonpharmacologic treatment. The NP is certified in a specific field of clinical practice. Minnesota statutes, section 148.171, subd. 11

12 Collaborative Management …is a mutually agreed upon plan between an APRN and one or more physicians… that designates the scope of collaboration necessary to manage the care of patients. Minnesota statutes, sections 148.171, subd. 6

17 Reasons for a Future APRN Model  Lack of common definitions related to APRN roles  Lack of standardization in programs leading to APRN preparation  Proliferation of specialties and subspecialties  Lack of common legal recognition across jurisdictions

18 Benefits of APRN Consensus Model  Facilitates mobility of APRNs  Ensures public safety  Increases access to health care  Advocates appropriate scope of practice

19 Consensus Model for APRN Regulation APRN regulation includes: LLicensure The granting of authority to practice AAccreditation Formal review and approval by a recognized agency of certification agencies and APRN education programs CCertification The formal recognition of knowledge, skills and experience demonstrated by the achievement of standards identified by the profession EEducation The formal preparation of APRNs in graduate or post-graduate programs Implementation target date: 2015

20 APRN Regulatory Model Nurse Anesthetist Nurse Midwife Clinical Nurse Specialist Adult- Gerontology Women’s Health/ Gender Related Family/Individual Across lifespan NeonatalPediatrics Psych/Mental Health Licensure at levels of role and population foci POPULATION FOCI APRN ROLES APRN Specialties Focus of Practice beyond role and population focus Linked to health care needs Examples include but are not limited to: Oncology, Older Adults, Orthopedics, Nephrology, Palliative care, Critical Care Nurse Practitioner

21 1)Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training. 2)Nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education system that promotes seamless academic progression. 3)Nurses should be full partners, with physicians and other health care professionals, in redesigning health care in the United States. 4)Effective workforce planning and policy making require better data collection and an improved information infrastructure.
