A preliminary conceptual framework for an advanced practice/consultant nurse role is presented which links the role to its context and outcomes.
The conceptual framework was developed in the process of analysing data from a 3-year action research study involving the operationalization of an advanced practice/consultant nurse role in a Nursing Development Unit.
The skills and knowledge base ofconsultancy, underpinned by a strong nursing foundation, augmented by strong leadership and combined with the educator and researcher functions, are presented as the attributes of the advanced practitioner/consultant nurse.
The facilitation of a transformational culture is highlighted as central to the skills and processes used within the role.
Implications for the preparation and accreditation of the advanced practitioner/consultant nurse are highlighted.
