NON-TRADITIONAL NURSING OPPORTUNITIES

Abstract

 With codification of the Affordable Care Act and one of its implementing sub-components, The National Prevention Strategy, the U.S. healthcare system will continue to evolve with a greater focus on wellness and prevention. The nursing profession is keenly positioned to embrace this focus on wellness and prevention, not only through greater numbers of nurses serving in primary care roles, but also through non-traditional roles that have an equally great impact on the public health of the Nation.  There are many career paths and job roles available to nurses other than the traditional role of direct patient care.  These non-traditional career paths and job roles are discussed and examples are provided. Our goal is to provide awareness about the numerous nursing opportunities to individuals interested in a nursing career and how those roles contribute to the overarching aims of the National Prevention Strategy.  Please provide this information by close of business on Wednesday, April 16, 2014.
