Exploring APRN Roles: The Nurse Practitioner Role
Aired on October 15, 2013
Webinar SERIES Overview
Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs), whether they are nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, or nurse midwives, play a pivotal role in providing essential healthcare services across all types of settings. With career horizons expanding, APRNs are expected to play an even larger role in meeting the nationís need for primary, preventative, and specialty care.
The GNSA is offering a new four-part webinar series focusing on the four APRN roles, including a discussion of the educational and clinical preparation for the role, transitioning from an RN to an APRN, specialty certifications, career opportunities, and tips to help you succeed in your first APRN position.
