The growing number of advanced practice providers in hospital systems has necessitated the establishment of centralized coordinating centers to manage core functions related to regulatory requirements and credentialing and to provide resources for research and evidence-based practice and practice model innovation. The Margaret D. Sovie Center for Advanced Practice was created at the University of Rochester Medical Center to meet these demands of more than 350 nurse practitioners. The authors describe the structure and functions of the center.
