ABSTRACT
The author reflects on advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) with Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degrees in the U.S. health care system. She suggests that the need for a health care provider with this skill set had been identified by a series of reports sponsored by the Institute of Medicine. She argues that with the passage of health care reform DNP/APRNs are prepared to play a vital role in addressing deficits in health care and improving the health of individuals and populations.
