How would you answer the questions below that were posed by King based on what you know about current nursing practice?
What is the scope of practice of nurse practitioners, nurse educators and nurse leaders, and in what kind of settings do these nursing professionals perform their functions? Are the current goals of nursing similar to those of the past half century? What are the dimensions of practice that have given the field of nursing a unifying focus over time? How important will it be for master’s prepared nurses to be knowledgeable in translating research into practice as our healthcare system stands to undergo significant policy changes in the near future that may leave millions of Americans uninsured and without proper medical care?
