Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The authors look at many aspects of a nurse-managed primary care center within an academic institution, as administrators and practicing clinicians. This article presents the history of the development of the center, the profile of clients and services, the education and preparation for the role of nurse practitioner and scope of practice, reimbursement, legal issues such as collaborative practice and barriers to practice, and risk management. Problems faced by many nurse-managed centers are addressed, especially the need for flexibility, with personal accounts of how they have been dealt with at this center. An evaluation of the center and its practice model is offered.
