"There are many policy books, but none are written by APRNs or focus just on APRN practice. This topic is critical in today's healthcare reform movement. APRNs are at the core, or can be, if they use their practice knowledge and education to shape policy...[The] editors eloquently make the case that policy formation is a critical nursing skill."--Doody's Medical Reviews ìGaining a better understanding of the political landscape and its impact on nursing and the APRN practice environment, by learning through textbooks such as this, and then through active involvement at any level in the political process itself, can only strengthen nursing and its influence on health policy .î -Loretta C. Ford, RN, EdD, PNP, FAAN, FAANP From the Foreword This view of health policy from the perspective of APRN practice is a call to action for advanced practice nurses to learn about the impact and implications of current initiatives in health policy. This knowledge will assist them in determining how they define and create positive change for their patients and have an impact on community, national, and world health. This is the only text that satisfies the need for policy discussions for all APNs , it is designed to meet the requirements of both the IOM report on The Future of Nursing and the DNP criteria V for inclusion of health policy and advocacy in the curriculum. The text encompasses evolving health care policy and reform in the U.S., Canada, and internationally, addressing its impact on advanced practice nursing, APRN roles, care for special populations, health care quality, and patient safety . The book brings together a wealth of information written by luminaries in the field. Dr. Goudreau is a Past President, and Board Member of the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists (NACNS), and Dr. Smolenski was Director of Certification Services at the ANCC for 11 years, directing certification for 150,000 nurses in over 30 specialties. The text discusses issues surrounding the regulation of APRNs, how the local regulatory environment shapes their practice and how they can shape their local regulatory environment. Additionally, the text brings in international perspectives on how APRNs can and are impacting patient care globally. In order to provide content relevant to a universal APRN readership, each section of the text endeavors to present information from all four APRN perspectives: NPs, CNSs, CRNAs , and CNMs. For all of these roles, the book covers the implications of current and future health policy changes for APRN practice. Key Features: Addresses the role-specific policy informational needs of all APRN roles including NPs, CNSs, CRNAs , and CNMs Brings together in one volume all of the requisite information about health care policy and reform and its impact on advanced practice nursing Meets the requirements of the IOM report on The Future of Nursing and the DNP criteria V for inclusion of health policy and advocacy in the curriculum Offers guidance on how APRNs can influence policy development Covers impact and implications of health care policy and reform in the U.S., Canada, and internationally

The Future of Nursing explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system. At more than 3 million in number, nurses make up the single largest segment of the health care work force. They also spend the greatest amount of time in delivering patient care as a profession. Nurses therefore have valuable insights and unique abilities to contribute as partners with other health care professionals in improving the quality and safety of care as envisioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enacted this year. Nurses should be fully engaged with other health professionals and assume leadership roles in redesigning care in the United States. To ensure its members are well-prepared, the profession should institute residency training for nurses, increase the percentage of nurses who attain a bachelor's degree to 80 percent by 2020, and double the number who pursue doctorates. Furthermore, regulatory and institutional obstacles -- including limits on nurses' scope of practice -- should be removed so that the health system can reap the full benefit of nurses' training, skills, and knowledge in patient care. In this book, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.
