Discuss how two of the provisions related to nursing outlined by the ANA have impacted, or will impact, your current practice of nursing. In regards to the Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) provision, where they are proven providers of high quality and cost effective primary care (Health Care, 2010). This provision has and will continue to impact my current practice of nursing by having APRN available within the hospital or a phone call away to collaborate and assist with getting the necessary treatments needed for a patient. In surgery, our main cardiovascular surgeon, has a APRN that rounds on all his patients, initially sees consults in the hospital that are called into him, and then relays the status of the patient to him, and if surgery is needed, she makes sure the appropriate orders are placed, which in turn s us in surgery immensely. She is available if we have questions regarding one of the patients or we see a particular test isn’t done, she can check on it or verify it. Having a dedicated and capable APRN in this case, allows for the surgeon to be able to devote more of his time with surgery and other duties necessary and relieves some of the burden from him, which in the long run, benefits the patient. The second provision outlined by the ANA, which will impact my current practice, is the nurse education, practice, and retention provision. The section 5309, added 2 new grant programs specifically aimed at nurse retention. The first grant program would award grants to accredited nursing schools or health facilities to promote career advancement among nurses (Health Care, 2010). And the second grant program would award nursing schools and health facilities for exhibiting enhanced collaboration and communication among nurses and other health care professionals (Health Care, 2010). I think this provision would impact my nursing practice by first encouraging career advancement among nurses provides nurses with a goal or a commitment and gives them purpose. I think up until now in my practice I felt that I really had no purpose, with incentives to promote nurses and make them a vital part of the health care team provides worth to the health facility’s staff, therefore they strive to be the best they can be. I think this also contributes to nurse retention, as well, which in the long run s with staffing and also s the hospital to save money. And secondly, by encouraging enhanced collaboration and communication among nurses and other health care professions s to provide quality continuum of care to patients and supports a team-approach to patient care, and a valued member of the health profession.
