In week one, you discussed your scope of practice in your current state as a nurse practitioner. Now, explore the four APN roles in your state (CNP, CNS, CRNA & CNM).
Discuss work environment, level of accountability, patient population, salary, and scope of practice for each of the APN roles. Provide your personal Pro and Con list for each role and provide appropriate citations.
Describe your rationale for choosing the CNP advanced practice role versus any of the other three. What are your plans for clinical practice after graduation? Has your idea of NP practice changed after researching this for your state?
