First, the role extension that relates to progressing in the field of medicine and the traditional functions of physicians, and the role expansion that implies any enlargement of the nurse's role within the boundaries of nursing education, theory and practice. In many countries that seek to expansion/extension of the nurses’ role. However, despite the shortage that exist in nursing and also because of the increased workload of nurses, caused employment of workers with lower skills and in result multiple significantly challenges have been experienced.  In our country, nursing role development has not considerable progress. The current situation does not provide enough infrastructures such as the licensing professional qualification and data-based decision-making from monitoring the effect of changes on the quality of care.
