    Advanced Practice Nursing: A New Age in Health Care, American Nurses Association:"Innovative advances in health care make frequent headlines, but there is an equally innovative, if somewhat misunderstood, treatment for the cost and accessibility woes plaguing the United States health care system. Almost 140,000 advanced practice nurses -- and their numbers are growing -- are carving out a new role in delivering timely, cost-effective, quality health care, especially to chronically underserved populations such as the elderly, the poor, and those in rural areas. Some 60% to 80% of primary and preventive care traditionally done by doctors can be done by a nurse for less money. This is not to say nurses work cheaper, but their cost-effectiveness reflects a variety of factors related to the employment setting, liability insurance, and the cost of education."

    Canadian Family Practice Nursing Association (CFPNA):"In June 2008, CFPNA became the 40th emerging associate nursing group of the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA).

    Certification and Regulation of Advanced Practice Nurses:"Position Statement: The nursing profession must develop a standardized national advanced practice nursing certification process by the year 2000. Advanced Practice Nurse is an umbrella term appropriate for a licensed registered nurse prepared at the graduate degree level as either a Clinical Specialist, Nurse Anesthetist, Nurse-Midwife, or Nurse Practitioner. Advanced Practice Nurses are professionals with specialized knowledge and skills that are applied within a broad range of patient populations in a variety of practice settings (see Attachment A). All Advanced Practice Nurses should hold a graduate degree in nursing and be certified. Each existing and future professional nursing specialty certifying entity must meet uniform national standards when certifying nurses for advanced practice. Those standards would be developed and administered by a separate organization such as the American Board of Nursing Specialties. Professional certification validates and standardizes the qualifications and practice competencies of the Advanced Practice Nurse and is the appropriate mechanism by which the public's health and safety can be protected. There are nurses prepared at the advanced level who have roles as administrators and educators. This position statement does not address those individuals. Rather, it focuses on nurses prepared for roles as direct care providers."


    Coalition of Advanced Practice Nurses of Indiana:"For some time now, many Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) in Indiana have felt that there has been a need to have a statewide organization with its primary focus being APNs. With the support and involvement of many of you, this has happened in Indiana! CAPNI, the Coalition of Advanced Practice Nurses of Indiana, has been developed out of local grassroots APN groups across the state. CAPNI has been created for the advancement of the APN role at the local, state and national levels. CAPNI will work to facilitate that advancement through legislation, collaboration and other healthcare disciplines and education."
