The role of the liver transplant nurse practitioner
by Quehl, Stephanie, M.S.N., Northern Kentucky University, 2009, 93; 1465561
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to gain insight into the emerging role of the Liver Transplant Nurse Practitioner (LTNP). The framework underpinning this study was The Strong Model of Advanced Practice Nursing. Specific research questions were to understand and describe the job components and duties of the LTNP, to identify how the components of the LTNP role relate to The Strong Model, and to identify personal views, role related strengths and barriers perceived by LTNPs. A purposeful telephone interview was conducted in this qualitative descriptive study to analyze the roles of 3 (n=3) LTNPs. Opportunities for future research include continued exploration of roles, describing time spent in the core areas, identifying barriers limiting participation in core areas, their implications, and how experiences relate to the perception of novice versus expert nurses. This may strengthen the advancement of practice by improving frameworks aimed at improving efficiency and outcomes.
