Nurse Practitioner Specialization and the Ripple Effects of Policy

This breakfast is hosted by the Pitt Nursing Health Services and Policy Research Group.

As the nurse practitioner workforce has grown, nurse practitioner clinical practice has become increasingly specialized.  This specialization has implication for the education, certification, licensure, and employment. In 2008, nursing leaders developed the Consensus Model for Advanced Practice Registered Nurses which seeks to clarify roles and provides a framework to policymakers who regulate these providers practice. As the Consensus Model has been adopted healthcare systems are struggling to adapt.  This presentation will include examine the pros and cons associated with adoption of the Consensus Model and describe the a research project to explore the tension.

Guest speaker is Kristin Hittle Gigli, an acute care pediatric nurse practitioner and health services researcher. She is a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Critical Care Medicine CRISMA center. Her research examines the role of the hospital-based advanced practice provider workforce in providing care and health outcomes of hospitalized children.
