- Distinguish the role as clinical or non-clinical and how it promotes patient outcomes, ie safety, access to health care or health information relative to the ANP level
- Apply an Advance Nursing Practice Concept to your chosen role
- Develop a minimum of ten questions that you would like to ask the advance practice clinician or non-clinician that you have chosen to interview. Identify in the paper the individual by name, credentials, position and your planned date for the interview (Interview is due Week 3)
- Support your findings with at least two research articles (study, design, sample and results must be discussed). Other peer reviewed articles that are non-research and nursing organization websites may be used. All articles must be current (not more than five years old, unless it is a hallmark reference; i.e. American Association of College of Nursing. (2010)).

Advanced nursing practice has continued to evolve under the influence of changes in healthcare conveyance, constraints in finances and consumer demands. This has necessitated the development of new policies, advanced education, and regulatory standards. The ANP concept mainly entails liberty in clinical practice, initiating professional and clinical leadership, as well as an expert practitioner and researcher. According to Thomas et al., (2017), an advanced nursing practitioner must have a comprehensive scientific foundation competency. Therefore, for a family nurse practitioner to be successful in the coming years, they will need to have a high level of education, excellent skills, leadership skills, legislated privileges, and readiness to meet their obligations to the patients, families, and society.
