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.

This short-length video version provides a succinct overview of the APRN Consensus Model.
