Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Karen Huss, DNSc, RN, CANP (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This new advanced practice nursing book describes information about the background and trends related to advanced practice nursing, new models of care, cultural competence and cultural diversity, issues such as health care economics and reimbursement, licensure, credentialing, and certification, and 10 models in which advanced practice nurses provide care to a variety of patients and families.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive resource that addresses the evolution, roles, issues, and clinical applications of advanced practice nursing.
Audience: Targeted for nursing students and new graduates assuming the challenges as an advanced practice nurse.
Features: This is a paperback, easily read, with an attractive cover. The section on the role of the advanced practice nurse as a case manager and decision maker are strong features. The illustrations consist of only figures and tables, and a selected bibliography is given in just some of the chapters.
Assessment: Nurses who have been in practice have acquired knowledge about the blended roles of the nurse practitioner and clinical specialist. For nurses who have recently been trained or who have less knowledge about the issues surrounding the evolution of this role, this text will serve to update practitioners as to how the issues emerged! This book offers a concise overview of the scope of advanced practice nursing, and presents models of innovative practice of nurses who provide care for underserved, vulnerable patient populations in a variety of settings. First comes trends related to advanced practice nursing. This is followed by a section that focuses on the changing environment of healthcare delivery and new models of care. In addition, issues such as ethical-legal dimensions of care and reimbursement are addressed. This book is worth the attention of nurses who wish to assume the role of an advanced practice nurse.
Kristen Byrnes
This text is a comprehensive guide for all students transitioning into an advanced practice nursing role. The many contributors comprise a list of known leaders in advanced practice nursing education. The editors have developed a text focused on the preparation of advanced practice nurses. They also validate the principles that govern advanced practice nursing, which makes this book an excellent resource for those already in an advanced practice role. The target audience is the advanced practice nursing student or novice. Content is applicable to all scopes of advanced practice, such as clinical nurse specialist, nurse practitioner, nurse midwife, and nurse anesthetist. The text is divided into several highly organized sections. In Section One the foundation of advanced nursing practice is assessed in individual chapters. Critical issues such as licensure certification privileging and educational requirements are examined. Application of clinical reasoning through use of case presentations is also included. In Section Two changes in today's healthcare delivery system are addressed. Topics such as nursing informatics, cultural diversity, and alternative and complementary therapies are explored. In Section Three the scope of advanced nursing practice is documented, as are elements of research utilization. Economic factors and political empowerment affecting practice are also discussed. In Section Four an in-depth view of the numerous roles of the advanced practice nurse is presented. Various models of practice application are explored using case vignettes. This is a practical text for not only the advanced practice student or novice, but for those already working in an advancedpractice role. The editors' holistic exploration of the advanced practice role and issues relevant to practice make this book an excellent resource to help the advanced practice nurse meet the complex needs of today's rapidly changing healthcare society.
