RN as Healthcare Policy Leader
As a health policy professional leader, communicating with lay audiences is an important skill in promoting the health of the community for master prepared registered nurses. Develop a concise position statement reflecting the research findings and recommendations by experts as they relate to workplace support for breast feeding mothers, medical marijuana services in the community, genetic testing or applications of stem cell research, transgender care, abortion, end-of-life care, or a community service administered by Family Nurse Practitioners (if you pick this one be specific about the type of community service the FNP would work in or manage).
Population Based Care
Find an article that describes holistic care of a client with a chronic illness. As a leader in healthcare policy, what additional healthcare policy changes would you advocate for to improve the health of this population? NR 507 Week 1 Discussions Altered Immune System
Discussion Part One (graded)
John is a 19-year-old college football player who presents with sneezing, itchy eyes, and nasal congestion that worsens at night. He states that he has a history of asthma, eczema and allergies to pollen. There is also one other person on the football team that has similar symptoms. His vitals are BP 110/70, P 84, R 18, T 100 F. Write a differential of at least five (5) possible items from the most likely to less likely. For each disease include information about the epidemiology, pathophysiology and briefly argue why this disease fits the presentation and why it might not fit the presentation Week 1: Altered Immune System and Altered Inflammatory Response NR 507 Week 1 Discussions Altered Immune System
