Advances in Nursing Science: April/June 2015 - Volume 38 - Issue 2 - p 136-143 doi: 10.1097/ANS.0000000000000071 Buy Metrics Abstract Enacted scope of practice is a major issue for nursing administrators, given the potentially negative effect on accessibility, continuity, safety and quality of care, job satisfaction, and organizational costs of nurses working at reduced scope. Optimal deployment of nurses to a fuller enacted scope of nursing practice holds much promise for addressing all of these larger challenges. In this sense, new model of the Enacted Scope of Nursing Practice presented in this article provides a number of directions for interventions that could improve health system functioning.
