In the face of limited resources and an aging population with increasingly care needs, healthcare systems must identify community-dwelling older adults with mental health problems at higher risk of adverse outcomes such as institutionalization, hospitalization and death, in order to deliver timely and efficient care.

PURPOSE: Nurse practitioners (NPs) have reported aspects of their jobs that they are more and less satisfied with.

DATA SOURCES: The 2012 National Sample Survey of Nurse Practitioners (n = 8311) was used to examine bivariate and multivariate relationships between work setting and three autonomy variables (independent billing practices, having one's NP skills fully utilized, and relationship with physician), and job satisfaction...

Governance was assessed by several indicators, regulation of titles, scope of practice, prescriptive authority, and registration policies. This policy analysis focused on eleven countries with task-shifting at the Advanced Practice Nursing/Nurse Practitioner (APN/NP) level...

This program was developed in response to an identified need in the community for improved mental health services...

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and the aging U.S. population have created a substantial shortage of primary care providers. Nurse practitioners (NPs) provide a cost-effective solution to meet this growing demand; however, the professional development and mentoring needs of NPs have not been clearly defined. This quantitative descriptive study assessed the professional development and mentorship needs of NPs as a first step toward development of effective programs to meet those needs.

OBJECTIVE: We investigated whether geographic accessibility to primary care clinicians (PCCs) differed across urban and rural areas and across states with more or less restrictive scope-of-practice laws...
