Overview: After you have read Chapters 28, 32, and 33 in your DeChesnay text, consider the healthcare policies within your state (State of Florida). What health related stories are in the news? Are there any “upstream” concerns in your community? (in South Florida). How do you believe that a Doctorally-prepared APRN could positively affect the overall health of the citizens in your state?
Write a one-to two-page journal submission about your thoughts to the questions that have been posed. Provide references to validate the healthcare policy and your concerns.
Use quotes or citable material, you are expected to follow APA formatting.
Note: My background for you to have as a reference: I am currently enrolled in the Psych Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program, I am a Registered Nurse. I work in a Psychiatric Hospital.
