Many challenges and opportunities exist in regards to the increasing numbers of APNs globally. These include poor role clarification, proliferation of APN titles, differing educational requirements and degrees, scope of practice conflicts, fragmentation/ variability in standards and quality of educational programmes (Schober & Affara, 2006).
Gathering data from different countries on regulatory issues is a critical challenge due to differing language for educational programmes, degrees, regulatory titles and practice models.
China/People’s Republic of China: 2
Hong Kong: 1
New Zealand: 1
Saudi Arabia/KSA: 1
South Africa: 7
South Korea: 1
Summary: Support for the NP/APN role was found primarily in domestic nursing organizations and the government, while opposition came mostly from domestic physician organizations and other nurses.
