Description 

Praise for the First Edition:

"There are many policy books, but none are written by APRNs or focus just on APRN practice…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

The only book of its kind, this text offers a wealth of information about the role of all types of APRNs (NPs, CNSs, CNMs, and CRNAs) in influencing the development and application of health care policy in a wide range of specialties. Featuring nine completely new chapters, the second edition delivers an invigorated focus on developing policy that advocates for vulnerable populations and discusses how the incorporation of interprofessional education has changed and will continue to alter health policy in the U.S. and internationally. The text also discusses the evolving influence of the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the implications of current and future health policy changes that will be impacting the practice of various APRN roles.

Authored by APRN luminaries who have been closely involved with health policy development, the text meets the requirements of the IOM report on The Future of Nursing and the DNP criteria V for the inclusion of health policy and advocacy in the curriculum. This "call to action" for APRNs is specifically designed for courses enrolling students from a variety of APRN trajectories, and includes content from all APRN role perspectives in every section.

New to the Second Edition:

  • Emphasizes policy development advocating for vulnerable populations
  • Discusses the current and future influence of interprofessional educaton on health policy in the U.S. and worldwide
  • Addresses how health policy changes will impact the various APRN roles
  • Includes nine new chapters on: Health Policy and its Effect on Large Systems, Value-Based Purchasing, Health Care Reform and Independent Practice, Health Policy Implications Regarding Substance Abuse/PTSD Treatment, Genetics, Competency Issues, and The International Council of Nurses

Key Features:

  • Addresses role-specific policy needs of all four APRN roles and DNPs
  • Encompasses all requisite information about health care policy and reform in the U.S. and worldwide and its impact on advanced practice nursing
  • Meets the requirements of IOM’s The Future of Nursing and DNP criteria V
