A new era of opportunity is emerging for advanced practice
registered nurses (APRNs) to increasingly address gaps in access to
quality healthcare. APRNs must be prepared to practice to the full
scope of their education and abilities. As more and more states
pass legislation enhancing prescriptive authority and fully
autonomous practice for APRNs, a comprehensive resource on
prescribing practices is needed.
The increasing demands of today's fast-paced healthcare
environment require a new level of prescriber expertise. Knowledge
about medication characteristics and effectiveness must be
accompanied by an understanding of the context and process of
prescribing. "The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a
Prescriber" provides practicing APRNs and students with the
information necessary to make fully informed, rational and ethical
decisions as prescribers.
This book opens with an overview of the role of the APRN
prescriber and moves on to discussing practical issues such as
managing difficult patient situations, special considerations when
prescribing controlled substances, the influence of pharmaceutical
marketing, state regulation, and legal aspects of prescribing. The
book also examines barriers to prescribing, and the concluding
chapter underscores key information to build cultural competence
An evidence-based resource for all APRNs and APRN students, "The
Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a Prescriber "provides a
comprehensive and practical resource essential for APRNs in all
advanced practice roles.
