Outline of Project. 
Policy can seem overwhelming, challenging and a little intimidating; but nurses need to have a voice. I hope this introduction into the world of nursing advocacy will help you become more familiar with the process and strategies that can be employed to make even the smallest of influences. This Assignment is laid out in 3 Essential Parts (each and every part must be completed for credit be awarded). See the grading rubric outlined below for how the grade is determined. Please read through the information carefully, follow the grading rubric, make sure to use appropriate APA formatting (title page and references page). You have a multitude of resources (these can be found with links in this paper below the grading rubric) to help you with this assignment, PLEASE take the time to review them and use them as it will make your life a LOT easier because I have done a lot of the background data gathering for you. 
Detailed Outline of Each of the Assignment Parts
PART I: Legislative Representatives and Policies 
Students identify 2 House of Representatives and 2 Senators from the  state of your choosing. Students then review 2 bills that are sponsored or co-sponsored by the selected state House of Representatives official(s) and 2 bills that are sponsored or co-sponsored by the selected Senate Representative(s) resulting in a description of 4 total bills (see outline below). Then the students will link these 4 bills to nursing, population, health and rational for choosing. Students  are all assigned a specific state and will find their assigned state in Week 1 in Blackboard under the folder Assigned State for Student’s Advocacy Assignment (each student is assigned a different state; if you have trouble locating this or perhaps you were not assigned a state by accident; please ensure to reach out to your instructor). 
PART 2: Writing a Letter to the Selected Representative
Students will write a persuasive letter to one of the chosen state Representatives identified in Part 1 regarding one of the selected 4 bills (from the 4; just chose 1) that the student feels will have the most impact with a rationale for choosing the selected bill. The letter will be written in a business/personal correspondence style including name, contact information and professional salutation for the receiving party (to whom it may concern is not acceptable). Zip codes for both the student and receiving party must be included to verify that letter is addressed to an appropriate elected official, who represents the student as a constituent. Students will need ensure recipient is the appropriate person for the bill/topic (state vs federal senator, representative, governor, etc.). The uploaded document to BB must follow this format and information. The Florida Nurses Foundation: Legislative Resource Toolkit: on pg 11 (see BB resources) format should be used and is provides you with the template. 
PART 3: Identify a Policy/Issue and Advocacy Strategy from a Selected Nursing Organization
Students will identify a nursing organization of their choice that has a policy advocacy section. Once the student has selected the organization, they will locate the section on advocacy and find their current legislative/advocacy agenda (most recent). There are several nursing organizations to choose from these can be found in your BB resources and in your Patton et al., 2022 textbook (these should be issues that are current and relevant)
