Week 21.The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was passed into legislation inMarch of 2010. Identify the impact of this legislation on your nursing practice bychoosing two key nursing provisions outlined in the American Nurses Association "KeyProvisions Related to Nursing" summary at?docID=1241&verID=1. Discuss how these two provisions have impacted, or will impact,your current practice of nursing.DQ1Posted 9/7There are a variety of different ways that the Affordable Care Act has affected nursing.One specific way in which it has affected it nurses are those that work in poverty or low-income areas. Nurses that choose to work in a public health workforce. Those who canwork in a public health area are offered a loan repayment option. This program is toensure that adequate health care professionals are available, in efforts to eliminate theshortage. This repayment program assists with repayment of one-third of loans incurredfor a 3-year agreement with that public health agency. The Health Resources & ServicesAdministration (HRSA) is “programs provide health care to people who aregeographically isolated, economically or medically vulnerable” (HRSA, 2016). TheHRSAhas a website () that shows what agencies areeligible for loan reimbursement. Another grant that may be of interest to me is thePediatric Health Care Workforce reform. This reform states “loan repayment program forindividuals who are willing to practice in a pediatric medical or surgical subspecialty orin child mental and behavioral health care for at least 2 years in an underserved area”(ANA, 2010). The recipient is eligible to receive up to 35,000 per year in loanrepayments. The area in which I currently work does not offer grants for employment.These grants my take away perspective nurses into these areas. Nurses may also decideleave there current position and move into an area that they are able to take advantage ofthese benefits. This could increase the current shortage within the hospital I currentlywork for.
