Advanced nursing practice is a complex term that has been explored over the last 10 years within nursing as nurses have changed the boundaries of their clinical care to try and meet the needs of their patients in a rapidly changing health-care setting. These roles are attractive to nurses as they can remain primarily clinically based as they progress within their careers. However there is currently no standardization in relation to job titles, educational provisions or regulations. The Department of Health issued guidance in 2010, but there is nothing mandatory to date. This short article will look at the issues involved in advanced practice in menopause nursing.
