Analyze how healthcare reimbursement influences your nursing practice.

Analyze how healthcare reimbursement influences your nursing practice.

As an educator, I teach students the importance of providing safe, quality care to all individuals, despite their physical, psychosocial, cultural, spiritual, or medical needs.  Our healthcare system is flawed and not everyone has equitable access to healthcare. As a Doctor of Nursing Practice, (DNP), I will empower my students and other nurses to educate clients about the importance of prevention, maintenance of diseases, illnesses, and risk factors for comorbidities (Cleveland et al., 2019). If clients are in control of their health and wellbeing, it will reduce the need for frequent hospitalizations, medications, diagnostic tests, and visits to emergency departments. It is essential that all healthcare providers collaborate to ensure that clients receive necessary care, but not be subjected to needless or repetitive tests and procedures. The Affordable Care Act’s goal is to provide quality care to all individuals at controlled costs (Salmond and Echevarria, 2017).
