Discussion Prompt

There are three troublesome issues that have emerged in the advancement of APRN practice. These issues in APRNs include 1) the clear role development and morphed to fill gaps in services; 2) the lack of clarity regarding role uniqueness, and 3) the dearth in nursing-specific outcomes. From your readings, this week, discuss 1 of the 3 questions. Begin your discussion with the question you will be addressing.
