Based on last week’s reading, you now have an idea of the role of the APRN, and legal/professional issues in prescribing. As a future nurse practitioner, you have the authority, based on your state nurse practice act, to prescribe medications for the patients for whom you will provide care, and the responsibility of prescriptive authority is more than just simply writing a prescription correctly.

Discuss the role of advanced practice nursing in safe prescribing and 3 prescribing barriers for APRNs.

Answer preview

Part 1

The role of advanced practice nursing in safe prescribing is to uphold ethical prescribing guidelines to ensure patients are free from harm. Despite differences in the prescriptive authority across states with some issuing site- prescriptions and others issuing controlled-prescription, advanced practice nursing should ensure the medications avoid harm to patients. The role of advanced practice nursing in safe prescribing, therefore, entails conducting a comprehensive clinical analysis. This includes defining the patient’s problem, determining the therapeutic goal of the drug, deciding the right medication, and providing the patient with comprehensive information about the drug and any potential side effects that the patient can experience. The role also includes monitoring the progress of the patient and admitting patients to hospitals (Bryant-Lukosius et al. 2017).(436 words)

Part 2

The role of advanced practice nursing in safe prescribing is to ensure they give the right medications for the present problem each patient exhibits. This includes providing specific-centered medication by conducting comprehensive clinical analysis and issuing patients with all relevant information regarding a drug such as the right diet, potential side effects, and the extent that requires a review. However, APRNs face different prescribing barriers, such as the restriction of the nurse practice Acts developed by states that outline types of drugs APRNs can prescribe (Adams, and Markowitz, 2018). For example, in Florida, APRNs can’t prescribe controlled substances. The other prescribing barrier is low rates of reimbursements where payer policies fail to recognize NPs prescribing services and fail to pay for the services (Hain, and Fleck, 2014). The other barrier in the prescriptive authority is denial to continue motoring patients when transferred to acute care facilities, which hinders prescribing in initial stages.(215 words)

Part 3

The role of advanced practice nursing in safe prescribing is to ensure accurate, timely, and consistent prescription.  However, lack of knowledge on the scope of practice and training for APRNs is one prescribing barrier that limits the APRNs to have the prescriptive authority of controlled drugs (Hain, and Fleck, 2014). The other prescribing barrier is the underrepresentation of APRNs in the political and legislative arenas to shed light on the scope of training and knowledge of APRNs that can influence the development of policies at the state levels to allow them to provide prescribing services. Historical issues on the relationship between nurses and physicians are another prescribing barrier. The relationship holds that the role of nurses is to provide primary care and be supervised by physicians (Woo, and Robinson, 2015). This limits prescriptive authority.(185 words)
