The concept of advancement, within the APN role, is the major key. In specialization, whether in a clinical or non-clinical role, the expansion of knowledge, skills and role autonomy is evidenced through advancement. There is an engagement in professional activities leading to innovation within the specialty (education) and nursing care (clinical education). The underlying commitment to a nursing orientation to practice is inherent. Nurse educators educate nurses (in academic, clinical, or staff development areas) regarding disease process and management from a nursing oriented perspective, to advance nursing as an art as well as a science. The information synthesis by the APN and by the nurse educator, are the same. It is the “integration of practical, theoretical, and research knowledge to accomplish the objective and assess the outcome” (Bryant-Lukosius, 2004). This integration, the application of role competencies, education, research, leadership, and ongoing professional development are the framework of an advanced practice role. Advanced practice occurs within multiple roles, not only in clinical practice.

The environment of acceptance for APN roles continues to evolve, not only in the larger healthcare environment, but also within nursing itself. The development, acceptability, and demand for APN roles is driven by societal values, expectations, and needs for nursing and health care services (Bryant-Lukosius, et al. 2004). The system influences these roles through need, as when the APN became more prevalent in community settings. Ongoing assessment or these environmental factors must be maintained and dealt with on all levels, including financial. Without ongoing and increasing financial support, the role of the APN can be considered expendable, and this is often seen in education budgets in academic a well as clinical settings.

Description of APN Role - Digication

In 2005 The Scope of Practice for Academic Nurse Educators was developed by the National League for Nursing’s Certification Governance Committee. The purpose of this document is to describe academic nursing education as a specialty area and an advanced nursing practice role within professional nursing. This recognition, and the introduction of a Nurse Educator Certification exam requiring a minimum of a Masters degree points toward the establishment of the nurse educator as an accepted APN role. Certainly without such an exam, the nurse educator role meets the criteria of other accepted APN roles as has been discussed, but testing will provide the needed data to continue to justify and promote the role, leading to increased acceptance and potential financial consideration.

As RN students studying to be APNs, preventive care is a key aspect of care the APN provides and it is essential that we are cognizant of this piece and incorporate it into our training and practice to become highly qualified APNs. In addition, to be adequately prepared for the APN role, RN students must aim to understand what the patient’s perception of their current health status is and current beliefs they have about their illness or conditions. This will enable the APN to adequately teach and guide patients and help them change certain risky behaviors such as smoking or poor eating habits that can lead to illness such as cancer or diabetes.
