From the Paper:

"In short, advanced practice nursing may best be defined in the words of ANA (1995) as an innovative, continuous development of skills, synthesis of experience, knowledge, and skills, and a holistic, patient-centered focus to the craft all constituent in what is known as 'advanced practice nursing'.
"All agree that the title implies an integration of practice and skills where the objective is to improve patient health through education, research, clinical practice, and organizational leadership. Critical thinking is required and so is synthesis of disciplines.. Advancement, by far, exceeds the traditional conceptualization of nursing in that it exceeds the role of nursing per se and enters into a diversity of other fields where applicable concepts are extracted and applied to nursing.
"Sykles and Lewis (2000) see advanced practice nursing (APN) as a pyramid where the base stands on environmental factors that influence the nature and purpose of nursing. These include the local conditions, the nursing profession the health care system, culture, the government, and the APN community itself. In other words, all contracts, policies and procedures that drive and undercut the health care service and the nurse practitioner role within that service."
