Abstract

Nurses play an essential role in long-term care (LTC). They can and should do more to create the kind of services and supports that people seek for themselves and for their families. To provide this crucial leadership, nurses must understand and advocate the array of services and programs that fall within the term "LTC," including, but not limited to, "nursing home care." We need to reframe how we think about LTC so that we can be part of changing it for ourselves, as professional providers and future consumers.
