Counting on Nurses to Fill New Jersey's Primary Care Gap

During the holiday break, Patricia A. Barnett, Chief Executive Officer of the New Jersey State Nurses Association & Institute for Nursing, wrote an editorial that detailed how allowing nurse practitioners to practice to the full extent of their training will ease the upcoming primary care shortage plaguing New Jersey. The suggestions made by Ms. Barnett align with the recommendations made by IOM's Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report, which seek to bolster the nursing field while improving health care in the United States.
