Training of the Nurse Practitioner: A Clinical and Statistical Analysis. Connecticut Health Services Research Series. No. 4.
Storms, Doris M.
The training program for nurse practitioners is concerned with the issue of educational preparation of nurses so that they might be more effective providers of health care. The focus is primarily on expansion of nurses' responsibilities and its effect on the nurse-patient relationship, the level of performance and independent decision-making expected, and the acceptance of this new role. The documentation for this report was obtained from the nurse practitioner training experience program at Yale University. The document is divided into three major sections: instruction, clinical experience, and acceptance. The instruction section discusses the instruction of the medical nurse practitioner, pediatric nurse practitioner, and the implications of practitioner instruction for nursing education. Clinical experience covers the medical nurse practitioner training, pediatric nurse practitioner training, and the implications of clinical experience for program design. The acceptance section discusses the acceptance of the role by the trainee, her patients and associates, and an afterword. Included are three appendixes which present demonstration forms and schedules. (Author/BP)
