The Nurse Practitioner/Advanced Practice Nursing Network aims to become an international resource for nurses practicing in Nurse Practitioner (NP) or Advanced Practice Nursing Roles (APN) roles, and interested others (e.g. policymakers, educators, regulators, health planners) by: making relevant and timely information about practice, education, role development, research, policy and regulatory developments, and appropriate events. Among other tasks, the Network provides a forum for sharing and exchange of knowledge expertise and experience. The Communications web page has news bulletins and resource links to professional organizations. The page also collects and publishes information on the trends of APN roles as they emerge in countries around the globe.
The research publications focus on mapping of advanced practice nursing competencies from respondent countries
