Data, although limited, from the past 30 years on Nurse Managed Centers (NMCs) indicate care delivered in these centers is high quality. Eight NMCs from four universities of the Michigan Academic Consortium (MAC) will report findings from patient satisfaction surveys (>200), community focus groups and preceptor interviews. These data evaluate the ability of a NMC to meet the primary care needs of their clients in a cost-effective manner. The overriding finding has been a positive community response to nurse-managed primary care. The universities and NMC's are diverse in location and population numbers, but the care being delivered reflects common nursing approaches. Community focus groups and patient satisfaction surveys indicate a high level of satisfaction. Another finding has been the importance of the development of competitive business practices. Results from interviews suggest that nurse practitioners (NPs) need a stronger business sense and adequate staff to support the multiple missions of the university. The overall impact of the power of the Consortium on practice and service will be discussed.
