Retrieved from - features/Vol39_3_nurses-and-the-affordable-care-act-a-call-to-lead Response I agree that reform does begin with prevention. Nurses take on the leadership role while supporting the health of families and communities through preventative care, and most importantly, education. Improving prevention efforts will improve the overall quality and health of individuals’ lives. This begins with nurses being on the front line of health care and delivering proper education to their patients. The ACA reform is focused on value-based care over volume of service and has incentives to meet benchmark outcomes for their clients (Luther & Hart, 2014). Preventative education is not the only important nursing role, but improving health throughout our communities by reaching out to individuals and educating the uninsured on how to sign up for insurances and letting them know the preventative coverages that come with their insurances (Wakefield, 2013).

Focusing care on primary care and disease prevention is a great way to keep people out of the hospital setting which is saving our overall health care budget a ton of money. Lowering the cost of certain health care coverage for primary care and care in the home setting will definitely contribute to a community's wellness and general health.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
