Under the Affordable Care Act, people are more likely to receive care in community health centers and at home than in hospitals, which means new responsibilities for nurses.  As the state does its full sprint to educate the uninsured, we wanted to focus on how some of the most crucial players are adapting: nurses. 

Sheilah Kast speaks with Kathy Montgomery, Dean for Strategic Partnerships and Initiatives, and Associate Professor in the University of Maryland School of Nursing and Bonita Wells, Director of Nursing for the Three Lower Counties Community Services, Inc.
