standardize the public and private regulatory scene. The IOM reports of 2000 and 2001 suggested that the various regulatory bodies needed to develop models of regulation that were most beneficial to patients. Several recommendations in these important reports heightened the need for collaboration, transparency, evidence-based decision making, and information exchange (O'Sullivan, Carter, Marion, et al., 2005). The vision was to implement one national regulatory scheme that would be most beneficial to patients and that allowed APRNs to be innovative and meet patient needs (NCSBN, 2008). Since that time, many years of work by a Joint Dialogue Committee, made up of the major APRN leaders and stakeholders, crafted the Consensus Model (NCSBN, 2008). The collaborative work of this committee is currently endorsed by 48 national nursing organizations, including all the major APRN organizations. A new model for APRN regulation is now a reality and is synchronized with the Page 16 of 2 NSG 6006 Pre-Specialty Evaluation ©2017 South University

It is important that readers access the Consensus Model documentation and familiarize themselves with the new changes (; ). Unfortunately, at the current time, vast differences exist regarding rules and regulations and the credentialing process across states. Making change to this legislative process is and will be difficult, at best. State regulatory data can be reviewed in the references for this chapter (Kaplan, Brown, & Simonson, 2011; NCSBN, 2012a; Osborne, 2011; Pearson, 2012). Lugo, O'Grady, Hodnicki, et al. (2007) have demonstrated wide variations across states, which indicate that APRNs are not able to reach their full practice potential in many states. This same study analyzed the data from the perspective of patient access to NPs and NP services, again finding wide variations from state to state, which indicates lack of uniform regulations of APRNs. (Hamric 558-559) APRN is an appropriate regulatory title, which we use when discussing legal and regulatory issues. (Hamric xi) ii. Other credentialing organizations: 1.
