Week 4 Assignment

Assignment:
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.

To Prepare:

Select a bill that has
been proposed (not one that has been enacted) using the congressional websites
provided in the Learning Resources.

The Assignment: (1- to
2-page Comparison Grid; 1- to 2-page Legislation Testimony/Advocacy Statement)

Part 1: Legislation Comparison
Grid

Based on the
health-related bill (proposed, not enacted) you selected, complete the
Legislation Comparison Grid Template. Be sure to address the following:

Determine the
legislative intent of the bill you have reviewed.

Identify the proponents/opponents
of the bill.

Identify the target
populations addressed by the bill.

Where in the process
is the bill currently? Is it in hearings or committees?

Is it receiving press
coverage?

Part 2: Legislation
Testimony/Advocacy Statement

Based on the health-related
bill you selected, develop a 1- to 2-page Legislation Testimony/Advocacy
Statement that addresses the following:

Advocate a position
for the bill you selected and write testimony in support of your position.

Describe how you would
address the opponent to your position. Be specific and provide examples.

Recommend at least one
amendment to the bill in support of your position.
