Role Development for the Nurse Practitioner provides a unique insight into the roles and activities of nurse practitioners (NPs) from the perspective of authors with years of Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) experience. Designed to show students, practitioners, and administrators what is needed for an empowering work environment, role satisfaction, and opportunities for improved patient outcomes, it is the first textbook to focus solely on NP roles.

Although nurse practitioners build on the foundation of nursing theories for role development, their education is supplemented with the science of medicine to develop a unique role. In addition, many Nurse Practitioner programs have made the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) the basic level of education. Due to the uniqueness of this blended role, this textbook is ideal for a wide-variety of audiences from nurse practitioners to faculty and students. The authors supplement their expertise as FNPs and DNPs with themes from surveys, interviews, and previous research to describe the role and practice of Nurse Practitioners. Role Development for the Nurse Practitioner is essential for identifying elements for a successful career.
