Advanced Practice Roles in Long Term Care


Academic Paper, 2019

11 Pages, Grade: 3.9


Abstract or Introduction

The purpose of this paper is to review all APN (Advanced Practice Nurse) roles and then look at my specialty, including the core competencies, certification requirements, scope of practice, and legal aspects for this particular position. The paper will also discuss the practice environment, population, and colleague health care professionals I will be working with, as well as the future leadership role and contribution to professional organizations.

The evolving needs of patients and the growing complexity of health care delivery models have generated a demand for several specialized health care professionals, comprising APNs. APNs have an essential role, holding a wide range of executive and managerial positions that significantly influence the health care industry. These specialized health care professionals have expanded the alternatives for health service delivery, as well as facilitating the development of more pathways to healthcare careers and leadership opportunities for nurses.

It should be noted that APNs are made up of nurse practitioners, nurse administrators, nurse educators, or nurse informaticists. Each APN performs a distinctive role; however, their responsibilities may intersect in some areas. Guided by fundamental skills and an understanding of the connection between education, experience, and patient outcomes, each APN plays a crucial part in the healthcare context.
