Advanced Nursing Practice is a topical and emergent area of developing health practice, but as an area that is still developing it can also be seen as one of uncertainty. Advanced Nursing Practice seeks to pave the way to a better understanding of ANP by providing a comprehensive overview of its evolution, including practice, theory and core concepts. Written by leading experts with extensive experience in the field it provides practical guidance as well as a review of the current clinical, strategic, educational and research developments. Chapters range from exploring the organizational challenges in ANP and the impact of technology, to assessment, clinical decision making and career development. This is an essential resource for Advanced Nurse Practitioners, their educators and mentors, and is a valuable resource for undergraduate student nurses, registered nurses and service managers.
