The healthcare system recognizes that patient education is crucial to recovery and reduces costly readmissions to hospitals, the role of nurses continues to expand. Nurses are now responsible for following up with patients to provide greater resources to those with chronic conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. By working with the patients to monitor their conditions, nurses play a role well beyond the hospital. Care coordination fits well with many nurses’ interest in bedside care and their focus on the whole patient rather than an episodic problem.
