Summary: New Features

  • Expanded international focus, with a NEW! chapter addressing the international development of APN: According to the Editors, ''There has been a rapid evolution of interest in and enactment of advanced practice around the globe.'' The Editors note that, ''Particular countries such as the UK, Canada, and Australia have supported advanced practice nurses for some time. Other countries such as China and Switz moreerland are newly developing education and practices for advanced practice nurses.'' A new chapter (Chapter 6), therefore summarizes the current state of development of APN internationally This new chapter includes the ''contextual'' issues of educational systems, political systems, and health care systems and financing. Common issues addressed in the international evolution of APN include the public image and status of nursing, dealing with physician resistance, discrepancies in titling, and educational standardization. This new chapter identifies what various countries can learn from one another as APN roles continue to evolve and develop and spotlights APN in Singapore and the Netherlands in two new exemplars. To further expand the book''s international focus, international APN literature is incorporated throughout the book as appropriate.
