Abstract

This nonexperimental repeated-measure study examined the relationships between processes (coordination of care, and provision of counseling and education) and outcomes (symptom resolution, functional status, and satisfaction with care) expected of acute care nurse practitioners (ACNPs). The data were obtained from 320 patients admitted to medical, surgical, and cardiac units. The results indicated positive association between the process and outcome variables, providing initial evidence delineating care processes of ACNPs that contribute to the achievement of nursing-sensitive outcomes.
