The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a Prescriber is an authoritative reference guide designed for students and practicing APRNs alike—delivering the evidence-based information required for informed and ethical prescribing of medication in various clinical settings. It assists the reader to identify and avoid common prescribing mistakes and pitfalls whilst presenting specific strategies to respond appropriately to an array of typical clinical experiences.This revised second edition includes new and expanded chapters with information on authorizing medical marijuana, prescription monitoring programs, electronic prescribing, prescribing globally and issues surrounding controlled substance prescribing and prescribing for opioid use disorder. This leading single-volume resource:

  • Addresses the opportunities, challenges and responsibilities that APRNs face as prescribers
  • Covers the laws, regulations, and professional issues that affect prescribing
  • Discusses global approaches to registered nurse and APRN prescribing such as task sharing, formularies, and independent authority
  • Guides APRNs through difficult clinical situations such as patients seeking controlled substances and requesting inappropriate care
  • Navigates the multiple facets of prescribing controlled substances
  • Examines the role of the APRN in states with medical marijuana laws
  • Serves as a resource to engage in advocacy for fully autonomous prescribing

 

The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a Prescriber is essential reading for APRN and pharmacotherapeutics students, registered nurses transitioning to the role of APRN prescriber, and all APRNs including Nurse Practitioners (NP), Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS), and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA).
