Over the last 27 years Nurse Practitioners have created a unique and growing role in the care of patients with acute, critical and complex chronic illnesses. It is an environment which demands more than mere clinical expertise. How do we transform our practice from one that addresses the needs of individual patients, to a one that influences the care systems and patient populations we serve? Imagine what it would be like if the 34,000 nurse practitioners who are certified in or work with acutely and critically ill patients became more powerful practitioners.
