ICN Network Update

The World Health Organization has called for the expansion of all nursing roles, including advanced practice nurses (APNs), nurse practitioners (NPs), and clinical nurse specialists (CNSs).  Currently, we know little about countries where APN, NP, and CNS research has been conducted or the impact of these roles on health outcomes.  The presentation will outline key findings from a review of 117 systematic reviews representing 1653 primary studies to identify research gaps across the globe.
