Consultation is an important function of advanced practice nurses. Within nursing practice, the process of providing consultation has been studied primarily in acute care settings. A CNS in a 180-bed, nonprofit nursing home implemented the intervention for a controlled clinical trial of nursing interventions to reduce physical restraint use. The consulting process undertaken by the CNS is described, and conclusions are offered regarding the most effective approaches to consultation by advanced practice nurses in nursing homes.
