State of Advance Practice/Week 2 Patricia Grayson-Canty Chamberlain College of Nursing NR 510 Leadership and Role of the Advanced Practice Nurse Terri Schmitt Professor Spring B 2014 Introduction The purpose of this paper is to further examine the state of advanced practice nursing from a local, state, national, and international perspective. The role of the nurse practitioner (NP) “evolved from the shortage of primary care medical providers in underserved areas in the 1960s” (DeNisco & Barker, 2013, p. 20).

I am hopeful that the challenges and changes demanded by the Institute of Medicine report will persuade educational organizations to solve the problems of greatly needed reasonable education.

Without superb time management, a nurse’s job will never get done. When implementing a new electronic health record (EHR), this disrupts the routine that nurses have worked hard to develop. According to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), U.S. hospitals are to become meaningful users of EHR (Kelley, Brandon, & Docherty, 2011). How can the disruption be minimized while implementing a new EHR as directed by the ARRA? Relative Advantage Relative advantage is when “the individual adopting the new innovation must see how it will be an improvement over the old way of doing things (Rogers, 2003).

These processes are due to The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 or Affordable Care Act 2010 (ACA), which includes several provisions to link cost-effective care with quality. The current system in the health care industry is fragmented and lacks individual responsibility for the coordination and quality of patient care. By designing incentives for establishment of integrated care delivery models and disbursing funds for coordination and quality care, the ACA seeks to reform health care resource allocation attempts towards rewarding quality of care while ensuring greater volumes of care. This necessitates nurses to adjust themselves to the reorganized health care system they being an intricate part in ensuring patient care and desirable outcomes, as well as being fundamental to the attainment of emerging patient-care delivery models (American Nurses Association, 2008). Let us also examine as to how the practice of nursing is expected to shift based on the concepts of continuum of care, accountable care organizations (ACO’s) medical health homes (MHH), nurse-managed health care clinics (NMHCs).
| 1 | The Differences in Competencies between ADN vs. BSN Mary P. Tharakan Grand Canyon University: NRS- 430V January 13, 2013 Mary, your paper is very informative. A few areas for improvement are noted in the paper.
