The Ambulatory Care Nurse is a Registered Nurse responsible for providing nursing care management services to assigned populations. Utilizes a collaborative interdisciplinary approach to anticipate, integrate, and coordinate the patient's plan of care and maximize the ability to remain in a community setting. The goal of the intervention is to meet the needs of patients in order to optimize clinical and resource outcomes, and to monitor the effectiveness of the plan and its outcomes. In collaboration with the physician, the nurse identifies at risk patient populations who require care management services. Provides bio-psychosocial assessments to identify patient needs and to assist in the development of the plan of care. The Ambulatory Care Nurse serves as a patient/family advocate and acts as a communication link between the physician, patient, family, outpatient and inpatient health care team, as well as community resources, to reduce redundancy and fragmentation of care.
