Abstract

Opportunities for nurse practitioners in acute care settings are expanding owing to the restricted hours for medical residents. This is coupled with national initiatives to improve the quality of care driven by patients, insurers, and national healthcare organizations that wish to enhance access to healthcare for all Americans. The authors discuss 2 care delivery models that were designed and implemented at Massachusetts General Hospital with nurses acting as full partners in the redesign.
