  • Details

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.
