Week 1: Barriers to Practice Discussion Read the assigned Hain & Fleck article, and discuss the following: What are the barriers to APN practice identified in the article? Describe these barriers in your own words. What are your impression of the barriers to APN Practice? (Are you surprised by these barriers? Is this new information to you? Have you ever been involved at the legislative level in nursing? Do these barriers concern you or motivate you toward becoming an APN?) Do these barriers represent Restraint of Trade? Why, or why not? Your thoughts on how nurses can influence these barriers. RESPONSE: The article by Hain and Fleck was very informative and has given me a better insight of the struggles and barriers nurse practitioners are facing in their role as primary care providers. I was already aware of some of the barriers described in this article, but not to their fullest extent. Hain and Fleck (2014) provide three main barriers: state practice and licensure, physician related issues, and payer policies.
