The passage of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) initiated the transformation of the United States health care system. The ACA fosters a preventive health care model that emphasizes primary care, funds community health initiatives, and promotes quality care. These changes increase the need for well-prepared health care professionals” (Lathrop, B., & Hodnicki, D., 2014).

“ACA provisions offer a promising future for primary care and prevention services but will yield little tangible success without adequate funding, knowledgeable implementation of the provisions, and an increased number of primary care providers to meet the expanding numbers of persons seeking primary care and prevention services. The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) nurse has the educational preparation to play an essential role in supporting and leading this transformation of health care to improve health care outcomes” (Lathrop, B., & Hodnicki, D., 2014).

“With the implementation of the ACA, the health care system will experience an influx of patients with complex medical needs, thus increasing the demand for clinicians who can meet these needs. DNP and Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) are increasingly available and prepared to address these needs as expert health care providers. Most newly insured patients will access care through primary care clinics that are already experiencing a shortage of providers. Only 30% of U.S. physicians practice in primary care and only about 25% of current medical school graduates plan careers in primary care. The Agency for Health Care Research and Quality has estimated that among nurse practitioners (NPs), 52% of all NPs were providing primary care in 2010” (Lathrop, B., & Hodnicki, D., 2014).

“ACA also authorizes grants for community-based, prevention programs (Community Transformation Grants), work-based wellness programs, and school-based health centers. DNP nurses have the advanced education necessary to design, implement, and evaluate such programs. They can combine their high level clinical expertise and increased leadership competencies to create new, community health initiatives. New ACA funding for work-based wellness programs and school-based health centers provides nursing entrepreneurs new opportunities for clinical practice” (Lathrop, B., & Hodnicki, D., 2014).

“Now is the time for nurses to address legal restrictions and other professional barriers that limit their ability to perform within the full scope of practice for which they are prepared. The ACA offers vast opportunities for DNP nurse leadership in health care restructuring, improving direct patient care, creating innovative programmatic development, and providing political advocacy. However, barriers threaten to prevent the full realization of DNP leadership potential in health care reform” (Lathrop, B., & Hodnicki, D., 2014).

This will not effect my practice in any way, but I am very excited to expand my education to participate in the future of the nursing practice.
