The Advanced Practice Committee (APC) is an ad hoc committee appointed by the South Carolina Board of Nursing, established to review current advanced practice registered nursing (APRN) Advisory Opinions and to advise the Board and nursing community on the safe and competent practice of APRNs. The APC also assists the Nurse Practice Consultant with questions related to advanced practice and serves as a resource regarding scope of practice, practice guidelines, trends in advanced practice and related issues.

The Committee is comprised of nurses representing the following practice areas: two Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, one Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, one Adult Nurse Practitioner, two Family Nurse Practitioners, one Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, one Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, one Psychiatric Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist, one Medical/Surgical Clinical Nurse Specialist, two Certified Nurse Midwives, one Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Educator, with ex-officio representatives from the Board of Nursing and the Nursing Practice and Standards Committee, as well as the Nurse Practice Consultant. Members must hold at least a master's degree in nursing.

The Committee meets on an as needed basis, at least annually in November for the election of officers. Meeting dates are posted on the calendar and agendas are available.
