Advanced practice nursing builds on the strong foundation of nursing practice by incorporating advanced knowledge and expertise in assessment, diagnosis, and management of persons with serious or life-limiting illness. In addition, the palliative care advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) demonstrates skilled communication and the ability to drive treatment plans based on the goals and preferences of the patient and family. Advanced practice nursing in palliative care is recognized as a specialty with its own scope and standards of practice, education and training programs, and certification. Palliative care APRNs contribute to the financial viability of palliative care programs by providing cost-effective care and effective billing and reimbursement processes.
