What Impact Will Reform Have On Nurse Practitioner's?

There are so many unknowns regarding both patients and providers with the passing of the recent monumental health care legislation. Thanks to a recent post on AJN's Off the Charts blog, they posted a link to a handy ANA chart comparing both versions of the legislation and what it means for nurses and nurse practitioners.

Of course, this is subject to change somewhat based on the revisions that still need passing however, I would imagine that it will remain pretty close to this.

It appears the biggest factor for NPs is the ability to lead the team of providers in Patient Centered Medical Home demonstration projects.

Stay tuned for more on this white hot topic of reform......
