Baccalaureate-prepared nurses are expected to function as managers, educators,
collaborators, advocates, and leaders within a variety of settings. These articles describe a
variety of innovative or “transformational” models in nurse-managed care across various
care settings. Another source of ideas are the vignettes and case studies found in your
develop an innovative nursing care delivery model for a vulnerable
population, care specialty, and setting in the United States OR a low income global country
that reflects nurse managed care, collaboration, care across settings, and technology.
For your paper, it is easiest to focus on one (1) population, one (1) health issue/disease,
and one (1) type of setting within a country. Be specific. If you use a low income country,
name your low income country (see list in module 1) and adjust your model to the
disease(s) and conditions found within that country. Consider that low income countries will
not have access to the same level of facilities, technology related to diagnostics and
communication, medications, and the health care professionals found in the U.S.
• A vulnerable population can include low income children and/or adults; elderly;
homeless; migrants; immigrants; racial & ethnic minorities, people with chronic health
or terminal conditions/diseases (or any group at risk for obtaining appropriate health
• A care specialty can include preventative care; primary care; acute care; chronic
care; palliative or end-of-life care (including the targeting of any disease or condition
that results in a health risk).
• A setting can include rural or urban community housing and/or clinic; school;
specialty unit in a hospital; emergency room; health provider office; armed services
facility; rehabilitation facility; hospice facility; ambulatory health care center; client
home; nursing home; prison or detention center; short term stay housing (or any
setting where a vulnerable client/patient population is available for care).
