    Role Development for the Nurse PractitionerRole Development for the Nurse Practitioner by Julie G. Stewart and Susan M. DeNisco just received 5 stars and perfect score of 100 from Doody's Review Service.

    Read more excerpts from the review:

    "This is a useful resource for nurse practitioner students, novice graduates, and expert clinicians. The authors are nurse practitioners and expert educators.

    The purpose is to assist nurse practitioner students and new graduates as they embark on their careers. The book provides an interactive discussion on the role of the nurse practitioner and the vast knowledge and skills necessary for the profession. The authors provide clear and organized information on topics such as certification and licensure, which is needed by graduate nurse practitioners as the launch into their new roles.

    The book is structured in four complementary parts. The first part focuses on the development of the nurse practitioner role and the scientific underpinnings. The second covers the variety of issues related to the patient/practitioner relationship. The third addresses clinical education for nurse practitioners, and the final part provides in-depth information on issues related to the role of professional nurse practitioner.

    This resource provides essential information to graduate nurse practitioners as they embark on transitioning from a registered nurse to an advanced practice nurse, a nurse practitioner. It presents many nurse practitioner and patient stories, in addition to seminar discussion questions that help readers in developing their knowledge."
