Abstract

SummaryThis paper considers the development of consultancy roles within nursing, specifically examining internal and external approaches to consultation.As consultancy in nursing develops there appear to be two major trends: external or independent consultancy where the incumbents focus purely upon this role as their 'job', and internal consultation where consultancy is seen as an integral part of their role and is a subrole of the advanced practitioner.In promoting consultancy as a means of developing and enhancing advanced practice, suggestions are made for future opportunities for consultancy in nursing and its role in the development of nursing practice.
