The only policy text written specifically for APRN students, this preeminent resource delivers a sweeping examination of policy impact on the full implementation of the APRN role across all environments, including its effectiveness on specific patient populations. The expanded third edition―containing six new chapters―includes expanded information on policy analysis, nursing roles, and the impact of technology. It provides practical knowledge on developing policy to advocate for vulnerable populations―bolstered by case examples―and discusses how interprofessional education has changed and will continue to alter health policy in the United States and internationally. Additionally, the text discusses the evolving influence of the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the implications of current and future health policy changes as they affect APRN practice. New doctoral-level content adds to the book’s relevance for DNP students. The text addresses the initiative within nursing for Full Practice Authority for all APRNs, which enables them to practice to the full extent of their educational preparation. Edited by experienced APRN leaders who have been closely involved with health policy development, the text meets the requirements of the IOM report on The Future of Nursing and the DNP criteria V for the inclusion of health policy and advocacy in the curriculum. This “call to action” for APRNs is specifically designed for courses serving a variety of APRN trajectories and includes content from all APRN role perspectives in every section.
