GRN 8104 Healthcare Politics and Policy

This course is designed to equip nurses in advanced practice nursing roles with the knowledge, skills, and critical thinking abilities necessary to shape healthcare system changes in the complex landscape of healthcare policy and political advocacy. Concepts and issues that shape healthcare delivery, access, and quality and their relationship to health policymaking and political processes are explored for their impact on advanced nursing practice.  In addition, evidence-based approaches to policy analysis, advocacy strategies, and leadership development to empower nurses to influence policy change and advance health equity are examined.
