A recent debate about nursing is whether the nurses roles should be expanded or extended. The expanded or extended roles of nursing are those duties not specifically outlined by the traditional limits of nursing. Nurses can be advanced practice nurses, such as clinical nurse specialists, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and nurse practitioners.
