ABSTRACT
This article describes the realignment of priorities in health care as they affect the experience of one university in the education of nurse practitioner (NP) students for the innovative new roles. Specifically, the curriculum and process of clinical placement will be described, along with several examples of NP roles that students have acquired after graduation. This information is useful for professional nurses considering advanced practice roles and pursuing graduate education. Since the turn of the century, the landscape of health care has changed dramatically. A number of evolving trends influence role opportunities for advanced practice nurses. Traditional role responsibilities, settings, and geographical boundaries are blurred or no longer exist.
