The healthcare reform is a good thing for nurses. For starters, the bill provides money for both advanced practice and general nurse education. One of the most exciting things for nurses, though, is the interest in demonstration models. The law creates a grant program for innovative safety net programs, one of which is nurse-managed health clinics.
Nurse practitioner programs are going strong. Now, the money will be there to support these nurse-managed clinics, where before the NPs had to jump through hoops to get private funding and do all sorts of maneuvers in order to stay afloat. Now that they can access real money and are able to provide care, they will start showing the outcomes .
The law will allow for different approaches to how we deliver primary care, by whom and where, and with fewer physicians going into primary care, there really is no other way to meet the need than through primary care NPs and nurse midwives .
There are some important initiatives in the PPACA that have to do with improving quality in hospitals, such as building capacity for trauma care and building capacity for prevention, wellness, and disaster preparedness. It will require more and better trained nurses. Safety and quality are foremost on everyone’s minds and the nurses to be more involved in assuring a safe and high quality environment in all hospitals across this country
Nursing is well prepared to see the healthcare system change its emphasis. Nursing has always been about prevention and wellness. We are also good at chronic care management, school health, transitional care and home visiting… all areas of emphasis in the new law
