Oberle & Allen, 2001 ) •Models of role development of APNs (see Chapter 4 ) •Models of APN regulation and credentialing (e.g., the APRN [Advanced Practice Registered Nurse] Consensus Model, 2008 ; CNA, 2007 , 2008 , 2009a , b ; Stanley, Werner, & Apple, 2009 ; Styles, 1998 ); •Models of interdisciplinary practice ( Dunphy & Winland-Brown, 1998 ; Dunphy, Winland-Brown, Porter, Thomas, & Gallagher, 2011 ); •Models that APNs would find useful include the following: o ○Application or testing of grand and middle-range theories to APN practice (e.g., Musker, 2011 ; Newcomb, 2010 ); o ○Models of role implementation ( Ball & Cox, 2004 ; Bryant- Lukosius, DiCenso, Browne, & Pinelli, 2004 ) and APN care delivery ( Mahler, 2010 ; McAiney, Haughton, Jennings, et al., 2008 ; Dunphy & Winland-Brown, 1998 ; Dunphy, Winland-Brown, Porter, Thomas, & Gallagher, 2011 ; Curley, 1998 ; American Association of Critical Care Nurses, 2012 ) •Models to evaluate outcomes of advanced nursing practice (see Chapters 23 and 24 ). In addition, professional organizations with interests in licensing, accreditation, certification, and educational (LACE) issues regarding APNs can be viewed as operating from some conceptualization of advanced practice nursing, whether implicit or explicit. In this chapter, the following types of models will be discussed: those promulgated by APN stakeholder organizations, models that describe the nature of advanced practice and/or differentiate between advanced and basic practice, and selected models that APNs may find useful in practice. In previous editions, problems associated with lack of a unified definition of advanced practice and imperatives for undertaking this important work were identified. When practicable, consensus on advanced practice nursing models should be beneficial for patients, society, and the profession. Although the APRN Consensus Model (2008) has brought needed conceptual clarity to regulation of advanced practice nursing in the United States, there is still work to be done with regard to other aspects of conceptualizing advanced practice nursing, such as APN competencies, differentiating basic and advanced nursing practice, and differentiating the advanced practice of nursing from the practices of other disciplines. This work has become more urgent given the impacts of other U.S. initiatives that are unfolding. I have reviewed published documents from national professional organizations and the literature and focused selectively on models of APN practice. This review is not exhaustive. For example, in limiting the scope of this chapter, statements on advanced practice nursing by specialty organizations have not been examined. Thus, the purposes of this chapter are as follows:

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
