Knowledge of the False Claims Act is necessary for nurse practitioners. Education on the False Claims Act is a preventive measure to protect patients, taxpayers, and federal health care programs. To provide the necessary education, I conducted extensive research on the False Claims Act, examined the literature to determine the relevance of the False Claims Act to nurse practitioners, conducted interviews with members in charge of preparing students to become nurse practitioners, and evaluated the best means to present the information. My end product is infographics that provide an overview of the complexities of the False Claims Act. From a health care compliance perspective, the infographics are resources that promote compliance with the False Claims Act through education.
