There is great variety in the descriptions of advanced practice nursing (APN) roles internationally. However, this variety hinders advanced practice role development.1 In Ireland, where advanced practice roles have developed much later than in the United States, the delay has resulted in a transparent regulatory process with a clear clinical pathway for advanced nurse and midwife practitioners. The first Irish advanced nurse practitioner (ANP) was in emergency nursing in 2002; a variety of other ANP roles now exist, including oncology, diabetes, and primary care. However, there are currently only 3 ANPs in hematology in Ireland.
