Meeting Description:

Hospital leaders tell us they have little information that clearly explains nurse practitioner role value. Hence nurse practitioner roles are commonly integrated without achieving the optimal practice and quality outcomes envisioned. We will present new strategies for hospital leaders, nurse practitioners, and other team members that support successful nurse practitioner role value optimization.

Participants will learn these key messages:

1. NP practice is optimal when enacting all three (3) practice foci. 2. NP practice is optimized through recognition and support of ‘invisible work’ and authorized clinical activities, enabling NP role flexibility, and building trust. 3. Optimal NP practice benefits: patients, healthcare organizations, team cohesion, professional capacity, and the healthcare system.
