Abstract

Nursing education recognizes the importance of graduate nurses understanding their roles as advocates, developers, implementers, and evaluators of health policies to impact the delivery of safe, patient-centered care. This article describes the use of problem-based learning as one approach to DNP health policy education. Students select a health problem and an associated health policy and use evidence-based practice, scholarly writing, and health services research to analyze the policy for efficiency, effectiveness, and equity.
