This is a one-of-a-kind, all-inclusive reference guide for new clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) entering the field, as well as for seasoned practitioners looking to update their knowledge.
Disseminating a wealth of current professional practice guidance and practical information on reimbursement and certification, the second edition has been fully updated to reflect changes resulting from the Affordable Care Act and the APRN Consensus Model.
Four new chapters address changes and emerging trends, expanding the focus on independent practice, increasing demands on health care due to the growing population of older adults, and updated reimbursement/economic issues. This authoritative toolkit is organized in an easy-toread format and includes numerous clinical examples, case scenarios, and personal anecdotes culled from the contributors' own professional experiences.
