Title: Development of the Future of Nursing
In an effort to provide American citizens with high quality, affordable health care the president signed into law and passed with help of congress, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in March of 2010. The ACA will attempt to provide at least 94% of the population with quality health coverage, while staying within the means of the average citizen.

Additionally, nurses who are interested in pursuing entrepreneurial and business development opportunities need competencies in such areas as economics and market forces, regulatory frameworks, and financing policy.
