Abstract

In 2000, the Institute of Nursing Science in Basel started with a clinically oriented Master programme in Advanced Nursing Practice (ANP). The nursing expertise achieved with this degree includes enhanced skills and know-how in a specialised area. Together with their nurse colleagues, the clinically, scientifically, and practice-orientated Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) support and develop nursing practice in Switzerland further, especially for chronically ill and geriatric patients. It is estimated that 25 % of older adults aged 80-years and older experience at least one hospitalisation per year. Beside the acute diagnosis, they suffer from several chronic illnesses. These highly complex and fragile patients need to be cared for by nurses with enhanced practice skills in gerontology. At the acute geriatric ward of the University Hospital Basel a practice development project is ongoing under the guidance of an APN to support person-oriented, geriatric care. The practice development project is led by the principles of action research. The circular process of "look-think-act" facilitates the critical examination of nursing practice. First results show shorter length of hospital stay for patients and improved job-satisfaction and self-efficacy for nurses. This article shortly reveals the history of ANP and highlights the development, implementation, and first results of the practice development project.
