To complete this assignment, you must identify a problem that is of concern to you in your role as an advanced practice nurse and develop a proposal for a potential policy change to address that problem, which is titled “Barriers to practice in Florida.” There are a variety of potential issues that could have an impact on your practice setting or another issue that could have an adverse impact on the patients with whom you work. You can think of the problem as being related to your health promotion project on the prevention of venous leg ulcers, which is based on evidence-based guidelines from ARHQ.gov and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Depending on your perspective, the policy you are considering may be a reaction to the health promotion issue, or it may be something larger that is still related to the issue.
