The purposes of this presentation are to: 1) describe selected client outcomes from ten clinics that are part of an integrated nurse-managed center; and, 2) propose recommendations for research related to the outcomes of nurse-managed centers.  In the summer of 2005, the University of Kentucky identified 23 community outreach projects within the University whose purpose was to address a social, economic or a health issue, which if resolved, would improve Kentucky?s quality of life. The College of Nursing Good Samaritan nursing center was named as one of these twenty-three projects. The Good Samaritan Nursing Center is a community-oriented nursing practice arrangement with the goals of promoting health, providing primary health care to medically underserved populations, and preparing nurses for leadership roles in settings serving these populations. The Center is an organizational framework operated and managed by faculty in the College of Nursing through which a number of clinical and educational services are provided. The Center includes three primary care clinics serving children, adults, and families, four elementary school-based clinics, one middle school clinic, and two clinics that serve the homeless and people with substance abuse problems. Clinics provide primary care, preventive care, as well as acute, chronic, episodic and urgent health care; and, are strategically placed where low income populations can be served. The Center has a comprehensive health education curriculum for children, developed in collaboration with the education committee of the Kentucky Health Care Access Foundation, which is used in the school settings. The Center is partially funded by the Good Samaritan Foundation, Inc. of Lexington, KY and partners with other community organizations. The longitudinal study, over the past five years shows a positive effect on school attendance, improved Kentucky educational test scores, the impact of the Center as a safety net provider, and improved knowledge of health behaviors.
