Ealth Care analysis on policy number SB 1352

Assignment 2 builds upon Assignment 1 in that you will be expanding the brief and writing an in-depth analysis of your issue. In this assignment, select the a?point of viewa? you will represent in your written analysis. Policy analysis & recommendations are particularly (exclusively?) reliant on the perspective of the individual or organization making the case for or against the policy change. Rarely is there one right or one wrong way to proceed. Like other areas of public policy, health policy is a series of trade-offs, with different winners and losers depending on the issue at hand. You will need to select the organization you will represent for this assignment. For example you can be legislative staff, a hospital Chief Nursing Officer (CNO), a representative of a professional association, state board of nursing, or a government official. The following bullets should be used as headings for the paper.
