Named a 2013 Doody's Core Title! "This excellent book highlights the development of the nurse practitioner movement.

The important issues influencing the continued development of the nurse practitioner role are clearly presented and reviewed. This update is needed in light of the ever-evolving healthcare arena." Score: 100, 5 stars --Doody's " there are plenty of lessons to be learned not only from the experiences and insights of these authors, but also principles and practices which they have found to be patient-centered, effective, efficient, and economical." -Loretta C. Ford, EdD, RN, PNP, FAAN, FAANP (From the Foreword) This fifth edition discusses the evolution and future of advance practice nursing, primarily for APN faculty and APN/NP practitioners as well as for leaders and administrators in education. Fully updated and expanded, the book comprehensively describes the historical, social, economic, and global contexts of advanced practice nursing. The team of expert contributors provides a wealth of insight into key issues of the day, such as the mechanics of financial recognition of NPs, the effects of managed care, and the globalization of advanced practice models. The new edition also presents a fresh perspective on the role of nurse practitioners in both small- and large-scale reform initiatives-such as health promotion, disease management, the rapid spread of global disease, and the diminished economic capacity of many countries to meet standards for health care. Enriched with case studies, key principles, and best practices, this book is a must-have for all those invested in the current and future status of advanced practice nursing. Key topics include: ilPublic relations strategies ilNurse-managed health centers ilAdult health and gerontology care ilBusiness, policy, and politics: success factors for practice ilGlobal health, international developments, and future challenges
