Where are you now?
  • From the “Overview” of AMA Scope of Practice Data Series: Nurse Practitioners, fighting words…

“It is the AMA’s intention that these Scope of Practice Data Series modules provide the background information necessary to challenge the state and national advocacy campaigns of limited licensure health providers who seek unwarranted scope-of-practice expansions that may endanger the health and safety of patients.”

-Standards of State’s vary greatly

how do you get there
How do you get there?
  • In December of 2009, the American Nurses Association and other nursing organizations responded to the AMA report with a strongly worded letter characterizing the report as misleading.
  • In January of 2010, the Engleberg Center for Health Care Reform, part of the Brookings Institution, issued a report encouraging states to increase the use of nurse practitioners and other health professionals to improve access and to reduce costs.

On November 17, 2010, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released its report, “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.

  • The report calls for:
    • Increasing the use of nurse practitioners;
    • Improving and increasing educational opportunities for nurse practitioners; and
    • Increasing the number of nurse practitioners.

Nurses should:

    • practice to the full extent of their education and training.
    • achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education system that promotes seamless academic progression.
    • be full partners, with physicians and other health professionals, in redesigning health care in the U.S.
  • Effective workforce planning and policy making require better data collection and an improved information infrastructure.

Remove scope of practice barriers.

  • Expand opportunities for nurses to lead and diffuse collaborative improvement efforts.
  • Implement nurse residency programs.
  • Increase the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80 percent by 2020.
  • Double the number of nurses with a doctorate by 2020.

Ensure that nurses engage in lifelong learning.

  • Prepare and enable nurses to lead change to advance health.
  • Build an infrastructure for the collection and analysis of interprofessional health care workforce data.
