This chapter examines the role of the advanced practice registered nurse in directing and delivering palliative care to patients in the nursing home setting. A nursing home is often the final place of residence for many elderly patients with life-threatening illnesses. In light of their education and training, advanced practice registered nurses are ideally suited to provide high-quality palliative care, delivered in accordance with recommended practices, to promote the quality of life for these patients and their families. Key challenges that may be encountered in these settings are reviewed, including the influence of state and federal regulation. The chapter discusses the evaluation and management of clinical issues experienced by patients, including evidence regarding the effectiveness of advanced practice registered nurses in providing palliative care in nursing homes.
