Delivers a wealth of information for nurses who wish to open and manage their own health clinics Public health nursing—with its focus on compassionate, holistic care and services to the poor, the aged, those suffering from social injustice, and those without adequate health facilities—had its origins over a century ago with the founding of the Henry Street Settlement in New York City. Embracing the same foundational principles, Nurse-Led Health Clinics is the first book to describe innovative, nurse-managed solutions for improving health care today. It addresses the key business, policy, medical, financial, and operational considerations necessary for successfully opening and operating nurse-led health facilities. With the mission to dramatically expand access to primary and preventive health care, these clinics provide a full range of services—including primary care, health promotion, disease prevention, and behavioral health care—to residents of underserved communities throughout the United States. The book delivers a wealth of comprehensive information for nurses who are considering opening their own clinics. Reinforced with best-practice models and case studies, it discusses what it takes to successfully start and run a nurse-managed health center. The book addresses the history and growth of nurse-led clinics and describes the nurse-led paradigm of care. It identifies the different types of nurse-led clinics (primary care, school based, wellness, and more) and the clinical services offered within them. Also discussed are the requirements and mind-set of potential consumers and strategies for sustainability along with the role of the collaborative team. The pros and cons of a variety of business and operations models are examined along with quality metrics and initiatives. The book also covers various state and federal policy challenges and opportunities and explores the future of nurse-led care in view of ongoing health care reform. Helpful appendices include a start-up checklist, sample bylaws, and a managed-care contracting toolkit. KEY FEATURES: Describes key business, policy, medical, financial, and operational considerations for running a nurse-managed health center Addresses the pros and cons of a variety of business models for nurse-led care Identifies the most common clinical services offered Presents quality metrics, best-practice models, and case studies Includes state and federal policy and regulatory challenges and opportunities

In recent years there has been a huge growth in nurse-led clinics within hospital outpatient departments, general practitioner surgeries and health centres. The government has endorsed the use of such clinics as a way for the public to access specialist health care and treatment more quickly and also as an effective way to manage chronic ill health. However, there is a lack of uniform structure in educational preparation for nurses interested in taking up nurse-led practice and a dearth of literature offering practical guidance. This text provides a much-needed overview of this new arena for nursing and includes case studies from practitioners running nurse-led clinics. Topics covered include: * Setting up a clinic * Public protection issues * Nurse education * Managing medicines * Effectiveness and evaluation. The text allows the reader to explore key practice issues which directly affect the quality of service provided. It will be an invaluable handbook for nurses directly involved in running clinics, for those responsible for the provision of nurse-led services and for nurse educators.

Baccalaureate nursing programs across California (CA) are required by the state board of nursing to provide theory of public health and applied clinical learning to meet the requirements of the state's public health nurse (PHN) certification. Students in Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs are expected to enter the workforce prepared to address population health needs that synthesize community-based assessment and understand epidemiologic approaches to strategize interventions in diverse populations at the local, state and national levels. To adequately prepare nurses for true population health practice, clinical experiences need to be in appropriate settings where they can apply theory to practice and experience interacting with vulnerable patient populations. Opportunities for interprofessional collaboration and multi-sector system partnerships are essential to preparing BSN graduates for the workforce. Give the growing trends in nursing education to meet the Institute of Medicine recommendations to prepare thirty percent more nursing graduates with BSN as the point of entry to practice by 2020, the competition for clinical placements has accelerated. Parallel to this problem is a growing homeless population across CA. The county of San Diego has become the fourth-largest homeless population in the United States (U.S.), growing at a nearly 10% increase annually. This is a local crisis requiring cooperation at all levels of public and private sectors to unite and develop innovative solutions to address the humanitarian needs of those affected. Preparing nurses who understand the historical, ethical and unique healthcare needs of this population is imperative to solving this urgent situation. An innovative approach to meeting the needs of BSN students and individuals experiencing homelessness with unmet healthcare needs is to provide nurse-led pop-up clinics within the homeless community of San Diego. This upstream approach brings students to the patients where they are. Students gain intimate experiences with diverse patients in community-based settings working alongside community partners to develop public health skills. This authentic immersive experience not only meets the competency requirements for the CA PHN certification but serves to support the multi-disciplinary actions needed to address the homeless crisis in San Diego. This paper outlines the development and implementation of a pop-up clinic model led by Point Loma Nazarene University School of Nursing beginning in 2019.

Practice Nurses play an important and pivotal role in healthcare providing a range of interventions and services to patients in General Practice and Primary Care settings. While most Practice Nurses work in GP surgeries and doctor led clinics, others are working as autonomous practitioners in community practices and nurse led centres. Practice Nurses are presented with an ever increasing range of conditions and patient needs as the role is constantly changing and evolving. The extended roles and range of clinical skills which may be provided by a Practice Nurse depend on the needs of the patient and the qualifications, skills, competencies and scope of practice of each individual Practice Nurse (NMBI, 2015). Practice Nurses have a responsibility to ensure that they are suitably qualified, skilled and competent in carrying out each clinical procedure and intervention that they undertake. Developing guidelines for clinical practice is an important part of the Practice Nurse role, but the task of researching, developing and producing guidelines is time-consuming, and it can be difficult to find the information required as and when needed. Practice Nursing: Clinical Guidelines and Procedures in Practice written by a Practice Nurse, and based on local and national guidelines, provides a comprehensive overview and a step by step guide for nurses carrying out a wide range of clinical procedures in practice. The book contains over 100 clinical guidelines and procedures with illustrations, tables, charts and diagrams. In producing these clinical guidelines, the author hopes that this book will prove useful as a resource and reference guide for other nurses in general practice and primary care settings.
