The increasing demands of today's fast-paced health care environment require a new level of prescriber expertise. Knowledge about medication characteristics and effectiveness must be accompanied by an understanding of the context and process of prescribing. The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a Prescriber provides practicing APRNs and students information necessary to make fully informed, rational and ethical decisions as prescribers.

The book opens with an overview of the role of the APRN prescriber and moves on to discussing practical issues such as managing difficult patient situations, special considerations when prescribing controlled substances, the influence of pharmaceutical marketing, state regulation, and legal aspects of prescribing. The book also examines barriers to prescribing, and the concluding chapter underscores key information to build cultural competence when prescribing.

An evidence-based resource for all APRNs and APRN students, The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a Prescriber provides a comprehensive and practical resource essential for APRNs in all advanced practice roles.
