WALDEN NUR6050 Assignment Week 4 Legislation Comparison Grid and Testimony/Advocacy Statement

As a nurse, how often have you thought to yourself, If I had anything to do about it, things would work a little
differently? Increasingly, nurses are beginning to realize that they do, in
fact, have a role and a voice.

Many nurses encounter daily experiences
that motivate them to take on an advocacy role in hopes of impacting policies,
laws, or regulations that impact healthcare issues of interest. Of course,
doing so means entering the less familiar world of policy and politics. While
many nurses do not initially feel prepared to operate in this space
effectively, the reward is the opportunity to shape and influence future health
policy.

one that has been enacted) using the congressional websites provided in the
