The Advance Health Care Directive

Locate a copy of an advanced directive (AD) that complies with the laws of the state in which you work. The organization in which you work should have a copy of an advance directive that is given to patients. If not, download your state’s Advance Directives here to an external site.


Complete the advance directive for yourself.   Do not turn in your AD with your paper. The AD is for your personal use.


In your paper, Part I:


1. Identify where you obtained the AD and explain its compliance with state law.


2. Conduct research (1-2 sources) to learn more about the AD in your state and explain how it works.   


3. Discuss how easy or difficult it was to complete the AD. Your comments should be specific and both objective and  subjective. For example, when you state your personal feelings, you must relate them to the literature (textbook and research) that discusses this process and the difficulties that many people face when completing an advance directive.
