The Consenus Model (just like the DNP proposal) has a proposed target year of 2015 for implementation. The problem with this is that Scope of Practice is more complicated than whipping up a piece of document by nurses sitting around a conference table. Scope of Practice change requires legislative changes in individual states. Nothing will change unless lawmakers get in on the plan.
On a side note, I know it's frustrating for many CNS's who have functioned in a provider role in one state with full prescriptive authority to realize that the same scope of practice is not in place in other states. However, I still don't understand why we keep calling the two professions by two different names if we are proposing blurring the lines that distinguish the two roles and calling it interchangeable. I think it just adds to more confusion as to who really can do what and what is considered sufficient training to allow one to perform a role so interchangeable.
