As the country focuses on
the restructure of the U.S. health care delivery system, nurses will continue
to play an important role. It is expected that more and more nursing jobs will
become available out in the community, and less will be available in acute care

  1. Write
    an informal presentation (500-700 words) to educate nurses about how the
    practice of nursing is expected to grow and changes. Include the concepts
    of continuity or continuum of care, accountable care organizations (ACO),
    medical homes, and nurse-managed health clinics.
  2. Share
    your presentation with nurse colleagues on your unit or department and ask
    them to offer their impressions of the anticipated changes to health care
    delivery and the new role of nurses in hospital settings, communities,
    clinics and medical homes.
  3. In
    800-1,000 words summarize the responses shared by three nurse colleagues
    and discuss whether their impressions are consistent with what you have
    researched about health reform.

    minimum of three scholarly references are required for this assignment.

While APA format is not
