As advanced practice nurses (APRNs) strive to practice to the full scope of their abilities, the role of prescriber is one that requires vigilance and preparation to achieve. This book provides an overview of the role of APRN prescriber, a discussion of the legal and ethical responsibilities of the APRN prescriber, collaborative strategies to enhance the patient-centered medication decisions, a section on dealing with difficult situations, an examination of the influence of the pharmaceutical industry, and a discussion of the cultural competence related to the role of the prescriber.

In addition to an abundance of practical, evidence-based information, each chapter contains an extensive bibliography along with additional Internet resources related to the subject. This is an excellent resource for any APRN taking on the prescriber role.
