You will be completing Reflection Assignments on the eight movies you will be watching during this semester. These are smaller writing assignments to teach reflective and critical thinking regarding the Nursing profession. This course is focused on three topics; Politics, Health Policy and Advocacy. Advocacy is a topic that can be Advocacy for the Profession of Nursing, Advocacy for your patients and their families and Advocacy for a Health Issue or Public concern that impacts the health of your patients or the population in general. You may rent these movies from vendors like You Tube, Amazon.com or Netflix etc.
Answer the following questions below in a narrative format. Use appropriate grammar, spelling and sentence structure. Double space your sentences. When you cite any other author works or web content to support your answers, use APA to cite the work, and create a bibliography page.
You will need a cover page or running head for this assignment. The entire assignment should be at least 3 pages and no more than 5 pages in length not counting your cover page and bibliography page.
