Evolving Roles of Advanced Practice Nurses and the Structures that Work

During the 2014 NAPNAP Conference, Melnic Consulting Group President Jill Gilliland moderated a two part panel discussion on the “Evolving Roles of Advanced Practice Nurses and the Structures that Work.”  Presenters represented many of the country’s leading children’s hospitals who shared their experiences and impressions of the advantages, challenges and strategies of developing or growing a structured program in a hospital setting.  Three models for success were presented that included some components of a strong model: An effective orientation program, cultivating advanced practice leaders and identifying outcomes impacted by nurse practitioner care.  Discussion also included multidisciplinary teams, their role, relationships and influence and how the contribution of the Advanced Practice Nurse impacts patient care delivery.  At the end of the presentations, panel members participated in a lively discussion with attendees who shared some very thoughtful questions and observations regarding structured programs and the evolving role of the advanced practice nurse.
