What % of population utilizes acute care?

  1. I'm sorry, if I'm posting in the right place.
    I am a first year older RN student, and I have to do a paper on this.
    I'm not sure where to start, so I figured I will first reach out to you for help.

    First where do I get population information on who usess acute care?

    Here are the rest of the questions.
    Any help will be appriciated.

    1. What are the benefits and disadvantages of working in this acute care?
    2 What can you specalized in this field?
    2. Is there a formal nursing organization recognizing this specialty?
    3. Is there a specialty publication associated with the formal organization?
    4. Is there a national certification program? (if so, identify it)

    Thank you so much for all your help.

    By acute care do you mean critical care? Acute care in my mind would be almost anywhere in the hospital that isnt a long term care facilitiy or sub-acute care. Your questions can be answered very differently depending on what you mean by acute care.
