Webinar Description

The AACN Board of Directors approved the creation of a Faculty Policy Think Tank (FPTT) in 2015 to provide critical insight into the state of policy education in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. The FPTT was comprised of health policy experts from member schools around the nation. The primary charge of the Think Tank was to make recommendations toward informing and improving health policy education in nursing. The Think Tank envisioned a robust agenda outlined in the final report and recommendations made to the Board with the intent of enhancing the reach and influence of the nursing profession.

This webinar will teach faculty how to focus on health policy research and analysis with generalists and specialists. It will provide innovative teaching strategies and ways to engage students in processes that influence policy decisions at different levels. It will emphasize the importance of interprofessional collaboration in influencing best practices for teaching and implementing health policy.
