The focus of this research assignment is to think about the current role of the nurse in healthcare policy.
- How has this role changed across time?
- What is the specific role that the community health and public health nurse plays in establishing fair and just healthcare policy on the local and national level?
- What role does the Health People 2030 play in directing the work of public health nursing?
Research to find a healthcare policy in your region that was passed in your state (a good place to start is your state Board of Nursing). Then, post a comprehensive response to both of the following:
1. Discuss the impact that the policy has on the delivery of safe, effective, and just care for the population served.
2. Make at least two recommendations of how the policy can be amended to provide better health outcomes.
3. List the URL or journal article where you located your information.
