Title:Manager/Advanced Practice Nurse
Advanced Practice Nursing roles in Canada have been implemented under a variety of titles. Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Nurse Specialist are roles that carry a significant clinical component with less administrative responsibilities. In contrast, administrative roles traditionally have not been associated with significant clinical practice. Should there exist such a distinct division in nursing leadership roles between administration and patient care? With the release of a national framework for Advanced Nursing Practice by the Canadian Nurses Association in 2000, some clarity about the Advanced Practice role has been brought to light. This framework clearly identities five main areas of competence and highlights the importance of integration. An innovative model of practice was developed based on this framework, which addresses the gap between administration and patient care. This novel approach, unique to this organization, integrates the traditional role of manager with the acute care nurse practitioner. Within the clinical domain, comprehensive symptom management is provided to patients living with progressive renal disease. This requires function at an advanced level within a collaborative practice framework and demonstration of in-depth theoretical knowledge. Administrative aspects include participation in all levels of organizational initiatives, program planning, financial and human resources management for all ambulatory clinics, and the facilitation of staff development. Leadership aspects further encompass mentoring other Advanced Practice Nurses. Research, collaboration and change agent are threads that are woven throughout the clinical, administrative and leadership character. This role is not regarded as being two separate entities, but rather as one Advanced Practice role, which embraces and integrates administration and patient care. This author suggests strongly the applicability and relevance of this leadership model for future nursing leaders.
