How does your state define the role and scope of the CNP?

Week 1 discussion
Discussion Part One
Mary, a baccalaureate prepared registered nurse, has been
practicing for fifteen years. Throughout her nursing career, she worked in
pediatric, surgical, and emergency departments. She worked as a floor nurse,
charge nurse, and was recently offered a position as a nursing supervisor. A
stipulation for becoming a nursing supervisor is that Mary must attain a Master
of Health Administration degree within 2 years of accepting the position. The
offer prompted Mary to contemplate her career. She is interested in returning
to college, but she realized that she does not want to pursue working in
administration and away from patients. Mary decided to become an Advanced
Practice Nurse (APN). Mary knows that working as an APN will allow her the
opportunity to make a larger contribution to individuals, environment, health,
and nursing. She researched graduate nursing programs and discovered that there
are four roles of the APN. Mary must
choose one role and apply to a program, but she is unsure about the different
roles and their individual scopes of practice.
Discussion question:
How would you decide? Develop a pros and cons list to assist
Mary in making her decision. Include each role of the APN on the list and be
certain to provide appropriate rationales and citations.

Discussion Part Two
A clear definition for the various roles of CNM, CNP, CNS,
and CRNA has been convoluted by various state definitions that confuse the
roles and often obscure their intended meaning. Such state definitions reveal
further confusion with regard to role separation, competency, emphasis,
approach, and variation. This misunderstanding extends to nurse educators,
providers, reimbursement, and even the public. The lack of clarity regarding
initial role preparation versus current certification serves to further frustrate
accreditors, consumers, and employers alike.

How does your state define the role and scope of the CNP?
Provide a correctly formatted citation for your reference resource.

Discussion Part Three
Mary expressed that she wants to work directly with
patients. She is familiar with working in a large hospital system, and prefers
to remain in her current town when she graduates. She has considerable clinical
experience in pediatric, surgical, and emergency nursing.
Discussion question:
Based on Marys experience and interests, which role would
you choose for her, and why?
