NURS 4105 - Advocacy Through Healthcare Policy


(5 cr.) Effective nurse advocacy is essential to the improvement of health in the United States. In this course, students learn about the power of advocacy through politics, policy, and professional associations. Students gain an understanding of how current issues, systems, policies, and related contexts impact advocacy. They engage in a system-level analysis of healthcare policy issues of access, equity, affordability, and social justice. Students perform healthcare policy analysis by applying research as well as legislative, regulatory, and financial processes in order to positively impact the quality and safety of nursing practice in the healthcare system. Through this course, students gain the knowledge and skills needed to be empowered to advocate for vulnerable populations and promote social justice and positive social change.
