oversight or written collaborative agreement APRN Educational Preparation Clinical and didactic coursework must be comprehensive and sufficient to prepare the graduate to obtain certification for licensure in and to practice in the APRN role and population focus. APRN Roles

CNP certified nurse practitioner CRNA certified registered nurse anesthetist CNM certified nurse midwife CNS clinical nurse specialist (certified) Population Foci for APRN In addition to the role, each APRN is educated in one of 6 population foci. These foci are:

Family/individual across the lifespan Adult-gerontology Neonatal Pediatrics Womens health/gender related Psychiatric/Mental Health Population Foci for APRN Family/individual across the lifespan Adult-gerontology

Acute Primary Neonatal Pediatrics Acute Primary Womens health/gender related Psychiatric/Mental Health

Specialty Education and Practice Specialty focus is on practice beyond role and population focus & linked to healthcare needs Preparation in a specialty area of practice is optional in the graduate program, but if included must build on the APRN role/population-focus competencies. Example: palliative care, oncology, diabetes

Core Educational Goals Ensure 3 Ps advanced Physical/health assessment, advanced Pathophysiology, advanced Pharmacology separate courses Ensure APRN role and population focused competencies attained Integrate adult and older adult Psychiatric-mental health across the lifespan Relationship Between Education,

POPULATION FOCI Family/Individual Adult-++ Across Lifespan Gerontology* Womens Health/ Gender Neonatal Related Pediatrics ++ Psych/Mental Health**

APRN ROLES Nurse Anesthetist Nurse Midwife Clinical Nurse Specialist+ Primary care Nurse Practitioner ++ Acute care Population Focus

* The population focus, adult-gerontology, encompasses the young adult to the older adult, including the frail elderly. APRNs educated and certified in the adult-gerontology population are educated and certified across both areas of practice and are titled Adult-Gerontology CNP or CNS. In addition, all APRNs in any of the four roles providing care to the adult population, e.g., family or gender specific, must be prepared to meet the growing needs of the older adult population. Therefore, the education program should include didactic and clinical education

experiences necessary to prepare APRNs with these enhanced skills and knowledge. ** The population focus, psychiatric/mental health, encompasses education and practice across the lifespan. + The Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) is educated and assessed through national certification processes across the continuum from wellness through acute care.

Acute vs. Primary ++The certified nurse practitioner (CNP) is prepared with the acute care CNP competencies and/or the primary care CNP competencies. As of 2008 Consensus Document, the acute care and primary care CNP delineation applies only to the pediatric and adult-gerontology CNP population foci.

Programs may prepare individuals across both the primary care and acute care CNP competencies Acute vs. Primary If programs prepare graduates across both sets of roles, the graduate must be prepared with the consensus-based competencies for both roles and must successfully obtain certification in both the acute and the primary care CNP roles.

CNP certification in the acute care or primary care roles must match the educational preparation for CNPs in these roles. Scope of practice of the primary care or acute care CNP is not setting specific but is based on patient care needs. KY APRN Scope of Practice
