Abstract
Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Despite advances in research and technology there continues to be fragmentation of stroke care. The author proposed an acute care nurse practitioner (ACNP) model for stroke patients to improve outcomes at a regional medical center. A business plan and job description for an ACNP role as a stroke nurse practitioner (SNP) was developed.
