Assignment: Regulation for Nursing Practice Staff Development Meetings

Nursing is a very highly regulated profession. There are over 100 boards of nursing and national nursing associations throughout the United States and its territories. Their existence helps regulate, inform, and promote the nursing profession. With such numbers, it can be difficult to distinguish between BONs and nursing associations, and overwhelming to consider various benefits and options offered by each.

Both boards of nursing and national nursing associations have significant impacts on the nurse practitioner profession and scope of practice. Understanding these differences helps lend credence to your expertise as a professional. In this Assignment, you will practice the application of such expertise by communicating a comparison of boards of nursing and professional nurse associations. You will also share an analysis of your state board of nursing.

Hi Stacy Winkler

Advance practice registered nurses have the knowledge, skills, and expertise to practice autonomously, as you have correctly noted.  Independent APRN is beneficial to patient outcomes. It reduces healthcare costs and improves the accessibility of healthcare services (Buppert, 2017). This is, however, not the case in some states in the United States. Some states allow APRNs to practice autonomously, while others require them to enter into collaborative relationships with physicians. I believe it is important for APRNs to practice independently to ensure their render services to their full extent of training and skills.
