Our LEAP project examined the roles of RNs in 30 exemplary primary care practices. In "Registered Nurses in Primary Care: Emerging New Roles and Contributions to Team-Based Care in High-Performing Practices", we identified the emergence of new roles and activities for RNs characterized by greater involvement in face-to-face patient care and care management, their own daily schedule of patient visits and contacts, and considerable autonomy in the care of their patients.
