Assignment Details Group Assignment (not graded but necessary)

Purpose:

You will be working on a group project that has three parts. You need to divide the work and make accommodations if someone gets sick or has family issues. Part of interprofessional practice is being able to identify policy issues and develop strategies to facilitate needed changes and bring these issues to the public’s attention. This generally cannot be done alone. Working as a group is more effective in bringing about change. As an advanced practice nurse, you need to start incorporating activism into your practice.

Use the Unit 2 group contract template and work as a group to complete the contract and submit in the group area underneath Unit 10.
