How to Assess NP Roles and Scope of Practice: Melnic at NAPNAP 2018

Posted on March 9, 2018   |   by   |   Employers, Job Seekers

Is your organization helping Nurse Practitioners reach their full potential? Join us at NAPNAP 2018 as we identify and discuss three scope-of-practice barriers facing NPs at America’s Children’s Hospitals.

In today’s healthcare environment, hospitals are challenged to improve patient outcomes, boost productivity, and increase staff retention. As we discussed in October, hospitals that effectively support and utilize their Advanced Practice Providers (APRNs and PAs) are more likely to realize these goals.

Advanced Practice Leaders from across the nation are taking a hard look at scope-of-practice within their own organizations. Just last year, Melnic sponsored a survey of more than 650 Advanced Practice Providers at five leading Children’s Hospitals. Together with this cadre of experts, we’ve analyzed more than 25 aspects of the NP scope to assess the extent to which NPs are practicing “top-of-license.”

NAPNAP Workshop: How to Evaluate NP Role vs. Scope of Practice

The findings of this research will be presented at the 39th National NAPNAP Conference in Chicago. Join us on Wednesday, March 21 at 1:40 PM for Session 317: Scope, Role, Are You Underutilized? How to Evaluate NP role vs. Scope of Practice.

Melnic President, Jill Gilliland, and a panel of dynamic Advanced Practice Leaders will discuss scope of practice and utilization of Nurse Practitioners nationwide, including the three barriers all hospitals face. Learn from the experiences of five different organizations to better understand wide role and utilization variations in healthcare today.

This session will also feature an interactive scope-of-practice survey with real-time reporting. Gain insight into the scope-of-practice limitations in your own role as an NP and consider ways your organization can more fully utilize its Advanced Practice staff.

Realizing Full Scope of Practice in Your Role, at Your Organization

We hope you’ll join us in-person at NAPNAP. But, even if you can’t make it to the conference, we want to support your career development.
