NNCC is a national leader advocating for nurse-led care. The NNCC Policy Team provides up-to-date information and education on issues that affect nurse-managed health centers. Our team ensures nurse leaders have a seat at the table with insurers, policymakers, and business leaders.
NNCC advocates for nurse-led health care to improve access to care for vulnerable populations and eliminate health disparities. A primary area of focus is nurse-managed health clinics.
Nurse-managed health clinics provide a full range of health services, including primary care, health promotion, and disease prevention, to low-income, underinsured, and uninsured clients. Approximately 58% of nurse-managed health clinics patients are either uninsured, Medicaid recipients, or self-pay. In addition to providing health care, nurse-managed health clinics in both educational and community settings play an important role in training the next generation of nurses, physicians, and other allied health professionals.
