Abstract

A variety of barriers contribute to delays in accessing health care in Indiana. Medically underserved areas and health professional shortage areas further potentiate barriers creating additional delays. Reduction in barriers to access is critical for promoting optimal health for Hoosiers. Advanced practice nurses may be the answer for reducing access dilemmas by developing nurse-managed health centers and by maintaining active employment in Indiana's Community Health Centers.
