The purpose of this retrospective descriptive study was to describe the characteristics of vulnerable persons who seek primary health care at a center for nursing clinic, the reasons for their visits, and a description of care provided. The conceptual framework for the study was an adaptation of Anderson's revised Behavioral Model of Health Services Use. This model was initially developed as a framework for understanding vulnerable population's use of and access to health care services. One thousand eighty-one subjects were abstracted from a computerized clinical data set based on the Omaha classification system. Research questions: For persons who seek primary health care at a center for nursing clinic; 1) What are their characteristics?; 2) What are the primary health problems, and; 3) What are the primary nursing interventions? Methodology was descriptive. Results indicated that of the 1081 subjects, the ages ranged from newborn to 86 (µ=35 yrs of age), the majority were female (n=638; 60%), single (n=455; 45%), employed (503; 55%), completed education through grade 12 (442; 41%), had yearly incomes less than $12,000 (536; 80%), uninsured (991; 92%). Diverse racial/ethnic groups were represented; Caucasian (n=449; 43%), African American (n=326; 31%), and Native Americans (n=198; 19%). The remaining 7% were Asian, Hispanic and other. One hundred percent of subjects had problems in environmental domain including income and housing problems. Other problems were identified in the health-related behavior domain (44%), the physiological domain (33%) and the psychosocial domain (3%). The domains are not exclusive. The primary nursing intervention schemes were surveillance (51%), health teaching, guidance and counseling (28%), treatment and procedures (12%)and case management (9%). Nurses individualized multiple interventions; the most frequent being health screening and education. In conclusion, center for nursing clinics provide an important primary health care delivery system for vulnerable persons.
