Written Assignment 4: Position Statement
Purpose and Overview
The purpose of this assignment is for students to address complex healthcare issues through a position paper. The purpose of a position paper is to generate support for an issue. A position paper describes a particular position on an issue and the rationale for that position. A position paper is based on facts that provide a solid foundation for the stance.
With the “Purpose and Overview” in mind, write a position paper that addresses healthcare disparities.
Your paper should include the following:
Identification of the issue (summarize the issue)
A general statement of your position
Background information, including stakeholders and the government’s role
Support this information with evidence or facts, including social determinants of health as well as race/ethnicity
Include any past experience of your own related to the issue
A discussion of both sides of the issue (negative and positive outcomes and economic implications)
An exploration of the societal and political issues involved, both pro and con, with supporting evidence.
Suggested courses of action and possible solution(s)
Restatement of your position
Provide evidence from a minimum of four references to support your position; two of these should be from scholarly sources such as journals or publications from national organizations. Document all sources in APA format.
Please note that both APA format and writing mechanics receive more grading weight in this assignment than in earlier assignments, reflecting higher expectations.
This assignment is for a required course for a Bachelor’s in Nursing.
