If all states adopt the requirements for the regulation of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs), as outlined in the Consensus Model for APRN regulation, the benefits will be far-reaching for consumers and health care workers. Consumers will better understand who an APRN is, what an APRN does and be confident that APRNs are consistently regulated from state to state for public protection. Current and future APRNs will have confidence in knowing that they don't have to meet different licensure requirements for difference states and that their education program is accredited and preparing them appropriately for certification and licensure into their advanced role. This full-length video describes the consensus model in-depth and shows the four different APRN roles in action.
