The Nurse Practitioner Roundtable Position on Post-Licensure Clinical Training - July 2019

  

NONPF supports the APRN Round table position on post-licensure clinical training. Nurse Practitioners (NPs) graduate from nationally accredited graduate educational programs fully prepared to provide high-quality, evidenced-based, and cost-effective care to geographically diverse populations.  No additional or supplemental academic, clinical, or supervisory hours are warranted or required to ensure that NPs deliver safe patient services in primary, acute and specialty care. The recommendations in this paper are based on more than 50 years of patient outcomes and peer-reviewed clinical research that have demonstrated that NPs consistently provide safe, high-quality, competent affordable health care. There should be no post-licensure requirement such as a residency.
