Succinctly define the role of the primary care nurse practitioner according to a national nurse practitioner organization (AANP, for example) and synthesize the role to the management of infectious diseases (surveillance, primary/secondary/tertiary interventions, reporting, data collecting, data analysis, and follow-up). This includes the integration of models of practice which support the implementation of an evidence-based practice. Refer to your course textbook for models of practice examples. A minimum of three scholarly references, research articles, is required. Web sites may be utilized but do not count towards the three scholarly references.
