Empowering nurses to lead and advocate
Nurses gain experience and valuable insight from their work on healthcare’s front lines. Our voices and expertise are an important part of conversation and debate over healthcare policy. Indiana University School of Nursing is a state and national leader in offering health policy and advocacy initiatives. Our faculty integrate health policy into courses available to students at all levels of degree programs—from BSN to PhD.
From the classroom to the statehouse, you can learn how to influence healthcare issues and lead as an advocate for the profession and patient care. Integration of health policy courses and experiential learning opportunities results in increased numbers of nurses in health policy and advocacy at local, state, and national levels. Currently, out of seven IUSON programs offered, four are student-focused, two advance the development of faculty to integrate health policy and advocacy into teaching, research, and service, and one is geared toward nurses in clinical practice.
