Summary

Competencies for Advanced Nursing Practice is the first and definitive book to deliver guidance for practitioners working to be recognized for their advanced nursing practice.
 
Written by experienced academics and advanced nurse practitioners from a variety of clinical backgrounds, this handbook will support nurses on their journey towards advanced nursing practice and provide detailed information on achieving the competencies within each of the seven domains outlined in the RCN and the NMC's proposed Standards of Proficiency for Advanced Nurse Practitioners: the nurse-patient relationship; respecting culture and diversity; management of patient health/illness status; the education function; professional role; managing and negotiating health care delivery systems; and monitoring and ensuring the quality of health care practice.
 
The text concludes with a section on how practice can be recorded and used in the portfolioing and accreditation process, how to collect and record evidence and how nurses can be supported and facilitated through this process.

Aimed at the professional nurse working towards an advanced level of practice, the nurse already practising at this level and seeking accreditation and also the student and newly qualified nurse giving early consideration to their future career, this book offers clear and user-friendly guidance for anybody wishing to undertake this standard of nursing practice.
