Getting Started

Do you know about the APRN Consensus Model? Do you have any idea how it will impact your practice? Let’s dialogue about the model, your understanding of it, how it will work in your state, your practice environment, and your life. How will it be a positive change for you? How will it be a negative change for you? What are the unintended consequences that it may have …both positive and negative and how can NACNS help? All of these questions with not many answers yet.

I will start out by orienting you to the APRN Model and then begin by exploring each of the elements within the model and within LACE. Let’s talk about it and what it means to you.
