NURS - 408. Health Policy in Nursing Practice

3 credit(s)
This course reviews the organizational and societal context in which health care is delivered in the United States. In response to the Institute of Medicine 2010 report on The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, this course prepares nurses to lead change and advance health through knowledge of how public and private policies are made. The historical perspective is developed early in the semester and is built upon to explore existing health policy and delivery systems including legislation, the professional disciplines, organizations and health networks, forms of care delivery, consumer needs, and economics and funding. The course ends with a focus on future forms of delivery that would improve the health care status of the American population as a whole.

Note: Offered by Baldwin Nursing Program. Specialized professional courses, restricted to students who have been admitted into Nursing Program.
