Abstract:
The number of hospital employed nurse practitioners (NPs), especially acute care pediatric nurse practitioners, is growing. The reason for this growth is primarily related to the American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) work hour restrictions for resident physicians. The recognition by hospital leadership of the high quality, efficient and personalized care NPs provide has created additional impetus for such growth. The increasing number of hospital-based NPs presents a new opportunity for nurse practitioners to embrace their leadership potential. A nurse practitioner department, led by nurse practitioner managers, creates: 1) A dynamic, unified, collegial group of nurse practitioners working together to achieve common goals. 2) A unique organizational reporting structure that accounts for the high degree of professionalism inherent in advanced practice. 3) Compliance in billing practice as well as to regulatory standards set by the Joint Commission. 4) A cohesive credentialing and privileging process. At Children's Medical Center Dallas we have taken a unique approach to this situation by creating an Advanced Practice Service that addresses the need for a cohesive reporting structure for more than 120 NPs. Specific detail related to this approach will be presented including: equitable compensation, the credentialing and privileging process, orientation and competency, education, creation of a community of NPs, and reporting relationships.
