    Shame on you ANCC : Psych CNS: Don't precept Psych NP's

    ...and the only reason that APRN are deemed advanced practice is that advanced status is measured on medical practice--not nursing practice--so saying that someone is not advancing their nursing practice is not accurate. What they are doing is learni...

    Shame on you ANCC : Psych CNS: Don't precept Psych NP's

    I agree that there is an overlap of medicine and nursing. There must be an overlap if the two professions are to collaborate effectively with each other for the benefit of the patient. My point of contention is that when the Consensus Model was...

    Washington Nurses Celebrate House Bill 1155

    I believe what the senator said is that it would be a financial problem for the hospitals. But that was also debunked by an article elsewhere that the critical access hospitals in WA were doing very well financially. I don't understand why 1) we wou...

    Washington Nurses Celebrate House Bill 1155

    A large part of this problem is that is it difficult for nurses to define their practice. We keep allowing people that have NO idea what nursing is to define who and what we are and are not. The Senator was only restating what she has heard or what...

    Shame on you ANCC : Psych CNS: Don't precept Psych NP's

    Yes, I understand that CNS have medical and nursing education. If I am understanding you properly...my point was that CNS have only recently been re-included in the APRN role. FL only approved the CNS role in 2017 or 2018. I served on the committee ...

    Shame on you ANCC : Psych CNS: Don't precept Psych NP's

    If it would be of any help. When the Consensus Model was ratified it was done knowing that many nurses were being disenfranchized and they literally did not care. The people that did not support the role as those who voted in the NP were disinvited....
