What is an Advanced Practice Nurse?
Advance Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) include Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM), Certified Nurse Practitioners (CNP), Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS), and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA). All of these APRNs practice in Ohio, yet have encountered many barriers to their practice. Undue restrictions often keep APRNs from providing the full scope of services that they are trained to offer.
