Question Description

Overview

This assessment requires you to describe the legislative process and the role of the nurse as a healthcare policy advocate. Your paper will consist of two parts:

Part 1:

  • A clear and complete discussion of the legislative process

Part 2:

  • You will choose one of the political issues listed in Burkhardt & Nathaniel on pages 392-393
  • Tie that political issue to current legislation being debated in your own state's house or senate
  • Describe both sides of that issue - for and against - clearly and thoroughly
  • Explain your own position, and explain why using research-based fact, not just your own opinion.

Make sure you also include a clear, separate introduction and conclusion as a part of this assignment, as these are worth separate points on the grading rubric.

NOTE: Please avoid the following topics, as these do not demonstrate research into current legislation in health care and are more “hot button” issues that do not often result in a strong paper:

    • Abortion
    • Staffing ratios/mandatory overtime
    • Physician assisted suicide
