Create a written FAQ (frequently asked questions) brochure or flyer to communicate the Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) role to an assigned stakeholder segment in the healthcare community. The brochure will use language appropriate to the stakeholder group, accounting for literacy, historical and present engagement with nurse practitioners, professional and ethical cultural considerations, and health reform implications. Although APA formatting style need not be employed for this document (except for references), the student should create a well-written creative document that is free of colloquial expressions, cultural and/or biased language.
The student will select one of the stakeholder groups from the list below.
The FAQ brochure should address relevant issues related to history, credentials, education, titling, role in the healthcare team, reimbursement and regulatory issues, and other areas of concern to the stakeholder population.
Possible Stakeholder groups include:
Legislators or Government Officials
Health Care Groups or Institutions
Consumer Groups or Associations
Medical Groups or Associations
