  14. 14. Conclusion <ul><li>A brief synopsis of the history of ANP reveals several themes: </li></ul><ul><li>Throughout the century, APNs have been permitted to provide care to the underserved poor communities and in rural areas. </li></ul><ul><li>significant resistance from organized medicine occurred whenever nursing care competes with physicians’ reimbursement. </li></ul><ul><li>  Documentation of outcomes of practice continues to be critical to the survival of APN practice. </li></ul><ul><li>  Efforts of national professional organizations, national certification, and the move toward graduate education requirement for advanced practice have been critical in establishing the credibility of APN. </li></ul><ul><li>  Intra-professional and inter-professional resistance to expanding the boundaries of the nursing discipline continue to recur. </li></ul><ul><li>  Societal forces (i.e. wars, economic climate, and health care policies) have influenced APN history. </li></ul>
