High-risk obstetric nursing role: Perinatal nurse practitioner
This article chronicles the development of the perinatal nurse practitioner (PNNP) role in providing care to high-risk obstetric patients in ambulatory and inpatient settings. Factors in the health care delivery system as well as the philosophic basis of the role are discussed. This role was modeled after neonatal nurse practitioners. Curriculum examples and role competencies are identified. Four programs are currently in existence with several more in the planning stages. © 1995 Aspen Publishers, Inc.
