Qualitative distinctions and similarities in the practice of clinical nurse specialists and nurse practitioners.
Current debate over whether clinical nurse specialist (CNS) and nurse practitioner (NP) roles should be combined or remain separate are largely theoretical.
Minimal research has been conducted comparing these roles.
Most studies to date consist of graduate follow-up surveys and comparisons of curricula.
Interpretive results of Fenton's investigation of the practice of CNSs and Brykczynski's study describing the practice of NPs were compared to highlight the commonalties and distinctions between the two roles.
This comparison is significant in that it explores the actual practice of CNSs and NPs.
Both studies were modeled after Benner's research exploring the development of clinical expertise and produced adaptations of Benner's domains and competencies of nursing practice specifically for CNSs and NPs.
