Healthcare Policy & Finance Week 7 Discussion 

Reflect on your discussion post from Week 4 and policy advocacy letter from Week 6.  (Check documents attached ).

After reviewing the healthcare policy about which you are passionate and the letter you wrote to your legislator, consider how you can continue to advocate for that policy.

  • In your discussion, identify additional ways nurses can advocate for change. Consider how advocacy can take place within local and state settings.
  • How can nurses promote advocacy for your healthcare legislation, or other types of healthcare legislation, during elections? Does understanding a candidate’s stance on health and healthcare matter?
  • What is an activist and what is the role of a nurse as an activist?
