Improving client outcomes through differentiated practice : A rural nursing Center model.
The TriCounty Community Health Center (the Center) was created in 1994 with federal grant monies to increase access and to provide outreach and primary health care services for rural residents.
The Center employs a differentiated practice model of nursing care in which all nurses use the nursing process targeted to client systems that match the nurse's level of educational preparation and competence.
The model allows nurses to intervene with various client systems, including the individual, family, aggregate, and community.
Program outcomes for the Center suggest that using a differentiated nursing practice model for outreach and primary care services appears to have a positive impact on the health of individuals, families, and aggregates in rural settings, using the Omaha Classification System as a framework for evaluation.
