Advanced practice nurses are registered nurses with a post-graduate education. Working in advanced practice nurse jobs allows nurses to experience more autonomy. Unlike RNs, advanced practice nurses are licensed to both diagnose and treat patients. In a time in which primary care physicians are a rarity, advanced practice nurses are becoming a viable resource for primary care.
There are 4 types of advanced practice nurse jobs: nurse anesthetists, certified nurse midwives, clinical nurse specialists and nurse practitioners. Many advanced practice nurses have a sub-specialty and treat a specific group or population.
Although advanced practice nurses share many of the same responsibilities with physicians, the practice is not completely independent. In many facilities, advanced practice nurses work with other healthcare providers to deliver care. However, advanced practice nursing is gaining more autonomy, and in 25 states, nurse practitioners are licensed to operate their own practices.
No matter your specialty, the ADVANCE job board can help you find advanced practice nurse positions in your area.
