NURS 405 : Healthcare Policy & Finance

The amount and way healthcare delivery systems are paid for producing their services is constantly changing. Healthcare organizations are rewarded to demonstrate quality outcomes. Nurses need a foundational understanding of healthcare economics, financing, and policies which have a significant impact on the provision of care, nursing practice, and society implications. Students will examine how the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) and how the allocation of resources impacts patients, laws shape payment and how to advocate for quality care.
