Guided Care is a practical, interdisciplinary model of health care designed to improve the quality of life and effectiveness of health care for persons with multiple comorbidities. Guided Care Nurses most often work in primary care in partnership with several providers, empowering patients and caregivers and coordinating patient-centered, cost-effective care.
The Institute for Johns Hopkins Nursing provides a six-week online course that prepares nurses to take the examination leading to the American Nurses Credentialing Center's new Certificate in Guided Care Nursing.
