NURSE PRACTITIONERS IN THE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT

Would a cost benefit analysis support the continued and increased use of nurse practitioners working in a community

hospital’s critical care unit compared to physician only patient care as evidenced by decreased
operational expenses and improved patient outcomes (e.g. mortality rates,
length of stay, readmissions rates, reimbursement rates, HCAHPS scores and
PSI 90 Quality Metrics)?

Paper Requirements: The paper must include these topics:

1. Overview of Nurse Practitioners in the American Healthcare System
2. The Role of the Nurse Practitioner in the Intensive Care Unit
3. Significance of the Problem (i.e. shortage of qualified doctors to work in the ICU, more patients who are sicker than

years ago, value based purchasing, etc.).
4. Synthesis of current literature/research (I will upload required research articles.) This section should be a large part

of the paper!
5. Pros and Cons of Nurse Practitioners working in the intensive care unit.
