Ashley Popa –Nursing is controlled by a variety of people and groups, none of whom control nursing entirely. The public controls nursing by influencing public health issues and by creating different nursing environments such as homeless care, home health, public health clinics, etc. Patients control nursing by creating personal demands for care. Some patients are more or less demanding than others which can control nursing care in addition to the nursing care required by their medical needs. Study participants and researchers for evidence based practice can control nursing care because policies and procedures change based on study results. The nurse controls nursing care because he or she carries out the physical and emotional act of nursing. Doctors and mid-level providers control nursing care by entering orders for the nurse to execute. Management controls nursing care by creating goals for nursing staff such as infection control measures or overtime prevention. Hospital or clinic administration control nursing by creating policies, utilization management, ethics law, etc. that affects day to day nursing. Members of legislature and government agencies affect nursing by passing laws related to healthcare.In summary, there are many many people, groups and other factors that control nursing but none that control nursing as a whole. Nursing it far too comprehensive to be completely controlled by just one person or group.
