- The purpose of this study is to grasp the present system of Advanced Practice Nurse(APN) and to suggest strategies for enhancing the recognition of APNs institutionally in Korea. We searched and reviewed literature and materials about the APN development process and present situation and related laws. We recognized that there were many kinds of problems in the APN system of Korea: a weak support from health care system, obscured classification of APN's services, confusion of qualifications, and lack of compensation from the national health insurance system. We should, therefore, identity the list of Korean APN's services and provide further studies about patient's outcome cared by APNs. Also, there is a need to create a demand for APNs to keep the quality of services guaranteed by APN. APN system must be established to progress forward in order to provide good benefits for the people.
