The United States healthcare has moved from an illness based model to community health-focused preventative model of care, and care coordination and transition management have become the cornerstones of ambulatory care nursing practice. Care coordination maximizes the value of services delivered to patients by facilitating appropriate, efficient, safe and high-quality patient experiences and improved outcomes. Utilizing best practices a Northwell Health ambulatory care site, has implemented a successful care coordination program. The upcoming generation of nurses must be equipped with a strong knowledge base in this essential concept. Threading the elements of care coordination throughout the curriculum will enable students to build on these concepts and be adequately prepared with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to successfully manage and coordinate care for patients.
