This paper examines five specific articles in order to better demonstrate the most problematic issues in long- term care in respect to nursing. These articles have been acquired from Online Journal of Issues in Nursing.

"Nursing Around the World - Japan: Preparing for the Century of the Elderly"
"An Inclusive Look at the Domain of Ethics and its Application to Administrative Behavior"
"Managed Care: Threat or Opportunity for Home Health Care?"
"Viva la Difference! The Nation Needs Both Types of Advanced Practice Nurses; Clinical Nurse Specialists and Nurse Care Practitioners
"The Nursing Shortage: Solutions for the Short and Long Term"

From the Paper:

"In this brief article by professional nurse practitioner Penny L. Cukr, there is a heavy emphasis on the theory that different specializations in medicine require specializations in the nursing community. Cukr finds that the different forms of nurses, such as registered nurses and primary nurse care practitioners, all are able to treat patients according to their professional training. In respect to long- term care, Cukr also finds that the role of the nurse care practitioner is most likely going to expand in the following years, where: "The primary care [nurse practitioner] addresses the need of adults, the numbers of this NP type is expected to increase as their generalized knowledge base is sought by the increasingly aging adult population." (Cukr: 1996)
"The implication of this article is that the role of nursing in an aging population is going to have to alter through sheer necessity: While Cukr does not specify exactly why the nurse care practitioner's training is more appropriate for long- term care than that of a registered nurse, it can be inferred that the nurse care practitioner is a cost- effective option for long- term care, especially when that care is not too varied or intense."
