After reviewing Unleashing the Power of the Nurse to Achieve Health Equity, select one of the following recommendations from the National Academy of Medicine for the nursing profession that would allow nurses to help everyone achieve full health equity:
Permanently removing barriers
Valuing nurses’ contributions
Preparing nurses to advance equity
Diversifying the workforce
Read “Health Policy Analysis: A Simple Tool for Policy Makers” from the University Library and Ch. 8, “Political Analysis and Strategies,” of Policy & Politics in Nursing and Health Care.
Apply the 8-step policy analysis framework that the article and the textbook chapter presents. Use the framework to align with the recommendation you selected. For example, if the recommendation you chose was diversifying the workforce, you are going to use lack of diversity in the workforce as the problem and then work through all 8 steps to develop a policy analysis for the recommendation.
Use the following 8-step policy analysis framework and compose a 700- to 1,050-word policy analysis report on your selected recommendation:
Define the context
State the problem
Search for evidence
Consider different policy options
Project the outcomes
Apply evaluative criteria
Weigh the outcomes
Make the decision
