The book Role Practitioner Development for the Nurse is written by Julie G. Stewart, Susan M. DeNisco. Educating colleagues, family, and friends about what a nurse practitioner is and does have been an important and frequently needed topic since the day I applied to graduate school, so this book was a natural fit for me.
According to the Author: Fast forward to the intensive care unit where I enjoyed providing comprehensive care to critically ill patients and supporting their loved ones. I loved being an intensive care nurse. After numerous years in that arena, it was time for a change. The hospital hired a nurse practitioner to lead our employee health department. I found it fascinating that a nurse could be my doctor! So I went to graduate school to become a family nurse practitioner. It was hard, but I remember it clearly; however, I also remember very well the night we began the history taking and physical evaluation. This was my “Aha!” moment. I drove home excited that I had finally found my professional role.
