Week 5 project | Nursing homework help.
The final written assignment is an 8-10 page paper that synthesizes information on the different advanced practice roles and scope of practice found in the Master of Nursing curriculum. It covers the roles of APRNs, nurse educators, nurse informaticists, and nurse administrator/executive. The paper discusses the scope of practice, core competencies, certification requirements, and legal aspects of practice for the chosen role. The student is expected to identify the practice environment and population they will be working with, as well as their peers and colleagues, and their future leadership role and participation in professional organizations.
The paper is to be based on current literature, standards of practice, core competencies, and certification bodies for the chosen role. The paper should also address health policy and the advanced practice role, specifically Medicare reimbursement for NPs and full practice authority in different states. Additionally, the paper should address the current policy or trends and determine if it needs to change, provide the process required to make the change with key players and parties of interest, support opposition, and explain how the student could lead the effort to make or influence the change in policy or keep the policy the same and the impact on healthcare quality.
The final paper should be supported by examples and sources cited in APA format.
