As an advanced registered nurse leader, you have an opportunity to be a catalyst for change and lend your voice to important health care issues. One of the ways you can do this is through lobbying and engaging with the legislative process as both participant and patient advocate.
In this assignment, you will work in a group to identify a current health care legislative issue and prepare a PowerPoint presentation with slide notes. This health care issue can impact your role, the setting, the scope of practice, or the population in the community you serve. Refer to the website of your state legislature to research current legislative issues and identify appropriate steps.
