Course Description

A synthesis course designed to enhance knowledge of the relationship between health care policy and professional nursing. A Clinical Practice Project (CPP) will be developed and implemented by the end of the course which demonstrates actual engagement with patients to impact patient outcomes. The course work explores the broader context of health care including how patient care services are organized and financed, and how reimbursement is structured. Regulatory agencies define boundaries of nursing practice and students need to understand the scope and role of these agencies. Discusses how health care issues are identified, how health care policy is both developed and changed, and how that process can be influenced through the efforts of nurses, other health care professionals, and lay and special advocacy groups. Addresses issues related to vulnerable populations, delivery and financing of health care, the impact of technology, and client advocacy.

Discussion Board

The discussion area in Blackboard is used for engaging in discussions about the course content. All of the postings should be thoughtful and reflective of your course materials and clinical experiences as indicated. Your initial post must be posted before you can view and respond to colleagues, must contain minimum of two (2) references, in addition to examples from your personal experiences to augment the topic. The goal is to make your post interesting and engaging so others will want to

read/respond to it. Synthesize and summarize from your resources in order to avoid the use of direct quotes, which can often be dry and boring. No direct quotes are allowed in the discussion board posts.

 

Post a thoughtful response to at least two (2) other colleagues’ initial postings. Responses to colleagues should be supportive and helpful (examples of an acceptable comment are: “This is interesting – in my practice, we treated or resolved (diagnosis or issue) with (x, y, z meds, theory, management principle) and according to the literature…” and add supportive reference. Avoid comments such as “I agree” or “good comment.”
