Advanced practice registered nurses have played a pivotal role in palliative care over the past 15 years and will continue to shape the future of hospice and palliative care. Broadly defined and practice-focused, advanced practice nursing includes interventions that influence healthcare outcomes, including the direct care of individual patients, management of care for individuals and populations, administration of nursing and healthcare organizations, and the development and implementation of health policy. There are specific requirements for education delineated by American Association of Colleges of Nursing and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Consensus Model as per LACE. Palliative nursing is a necessary aspect of all specialty tracks. This chapter reviews graduate requirements for APRNs and palliative care content in graduate curricula.
