Differences exist in the educational background, board examinations and licensing requirements of NPs and PAs. In addition, their practice patterns, recertification and types of supervision are different. Moreover, changes in the NP educational pathway leading to a doctoral degree will create new challenges regarding collaboration agreements currently required by South Dakota statute...

In response to the current shortage in the Australian nursing workforce, educational strategies that support organisational investment in nurses returning to the workforce are described. For many of these nurses, contemporary roles and responsibilities present a dramatic departure from their previous experiences. This hospital-based Return to Practice Programme described in this paper is pivotal to the integration of formal learning with current clinical practice. The programme moves away from a need to fill vacant positions to a framework that overtly values the diversity of experience and knowledge that participants bring to the workplace, focusing on a person-environment fit with opportunities for clinical practice...
