now ten master's programs offering this specialty preparation, and one of these programs recently transitioned to offer a DNP in forensic nursing (IAFN, 2012). (Hamric 120) Hamric, Ann, Charlene Hanson, Mary Tracy, Eileen O'Grady. Advanced Practice Nursing: An Integrative Approach, 5th Edition. Saunders, 07/2013. VitalBook file. 3. Another example of innovation is the APN hospitalist. Although there are limited definitions of the APN hospitalist in the literature, Sullivan (2009) reported the following, which serves as a guide for the role description of the hospitalist APN in the state of Mississippi. This definition states that an APN hospitalist is a nationally certified nurse practitioner whose practice site is the hospital and who has no outside primary or tertiary practice site (Hamric 115) Concrete defined tasks include admitting histories, physical examinations, orders, discharge instructions and summaries, and a daily visit with a progress note. ACNP are most suited for hospitalist positions. They order and interpret diagnostic and laboratory tests, participate in multidisciplinary unit rounds, and update an electronic sign-out system for safer handoffs. b.

The Role of the Advanced Practice Nurse NSG 6006 Week 2 As Hamric (2000) wrote in addressing the WOC specialty group, “[Our] hope is that they will say [we] clearly saw patients' needs and developed [our] skills to meet those needs; that [we] grasped the role opportunities that were possible and created new ones; and, most importantly, that [we] moved forward together” (p. 47) (Hamric 130) Hamric, Ann, Charlene Hanson, Mary Tracy, Eileen O'Grady. Advanced Practice Nursing: An Integrative Approach, 5th Edition. Saunders, 07/2013. VitalBook file. 4. Four recognized APN roles Watch this short video on VA APRN roles: a. Clinical nurse specialist i. Currently, the CNS is defined as an APN who practices in three substantive areas, as articulated by Lewandowski and Adamle (2009); 1. to manage the care of complex and vulnerable populations, 2. educate and support nursing and interdisciplinary staff, and 3. facilitate change and innovation in health care systems (Hamric 360) b. Nurse practitioner (primary care; acute care) Two credentialing bodies: AACN & AANP i. Foundational to NP graduates overall, and specifically NPs in primary care, is that they have knowledge, skills, and abilities essential to independent and direct clinical practice (see Chapter 7, NONPF, 2012). ii. The NP core competencies are acquired throughout an NP's educational program through mentored patient care experiences, with emphasis on independent and interprofessional practice; analytic skills for evaluating and providing evidence- based, patient-centered care across settings, and advanced knowledge of the health care delivery system (Hamric 400) 1.

    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.
