In the last decade, there has been a dramatic increase in advance practice registered nurses (APRNs) in the acute care setting. In 2017, the Joint Commission issued antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) standards for the acute care setting. The role of the APRNs has not formally been recognized in the guidelines for implementing and operative AMS programs. Regardless, APRNs are increasingly performing essential roles in antibiotic stewardship, and the aim of this review is to describe areas APRNs can impact antibiotics stewardship. Articles that described AMS process were indexed from PubMed. APRNs have expertise in managing and coordinating care for across many clinical conditions and are able to improve the quality of care and improve AMS. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Medical knowledge, Patient care.
