ASSIGNMENT 2

1. Reflect on the current roles of advanced practice nurses in healthcare as the care providers at the front line of disease management and health promotion in primary care and many other specialty settings. What do you think are some effective tactics for APN strategic positioning regarding pay equality? Should APNs position themselves as lower-cost providers who provide better care or push for comparable worth, same service and same pay?

2. Discuss the impact of global migration on the nursing workforce and its particular influence on advanced practice nurses’ demand and compensation.

3. Examine issues related to practice authority and collective bargaining faced by nurse practitioners and other advanced practice nurses.
