Health reform and transformation now call for the creation of a new landscape for nursing practice based on intentional translation application of value-driven measures of service, quality, and price. Nursing is a central driver in the effective recalibration of health care within the rubric of health transformation under the aegis of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Increasingly relying on a growing digital infrastructure, the nursing profession must now reframe both its practice foundations and patterns of practice to reflect emerging value-driven, health-grounded service requisites. Specific nursing responses are suggested, which position nursing to best coordinate, integrate, and facilitate health delivery in the emerging value-driven service environment.
