The purpose of this research is to compare functional and team nursing models of care delivery with nurse sensitive patient outcomes in an acute medical surgical unit. There is a real need to redesign the work in the hospital so that the work can be accomplished with fewer nurses and more efficiently. The ability to have time to do the care for inpatients is important. Today, nurses need to take every opportunity to provide immediate care to the patient at that time due to shorter length of stay. Not fulfilling the patient's plan of treatment leads to negative patient outcomes. Preexisting data were used to determine whether if there was a relationship between the nursing care models. The statistical analysis showed no significant difference between the two nursing care models. Further research comparing nursing care models involving other nurse sensitive patient outcomes is needed.
