Based on all the readings and activities you have done up to this point Describe the role of nurses/nursing in developing health care policy as it currently exits and as you think it should be. Be specific and provide examples. Compare and contrast what the DNP can bring to the development of health policy with that of what other health care professions (physicians, PTs, Pharmacists) can bring.
