As you have discovered through this course, nurses are influential members of the community and the political system. Therefore, for the purposes of this assignment you will identify a problem or concern in your community, organization, etc. that has the capacity to be legislated. You will conduct research and state a proposal. Through the legislative process, your proposal for the problem or concern may influence an idea for change into a law.
First, refer to the “How a Bill Becomes a Law” media.
Then, view the “Bill to Law Process” to watch the scenario.
After viewing the scenario, refer to the “Legislative Assignment.” You will need to save the document first in order to use it.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
This is a template/worksheet.
I have attached the template here for your ease. Please use this template, answer the questions.
When you start to type on the template, you may (I try and deactivate this software when I attach) see colors and formatting “track changes” (screen shot document attached with these instructions). If you see these “track changes” colors, once you have completed your assignment, go to the top of the page,
1. Click on the “Review tab”
2. Click the “Track Changes tab”
3. Click the “Accept” down arrow
4. Click “Accept all changes in the document”
5. Click “Save as” with your name and the colors should go away. If not, no worries, submit with the formatting colors and I can ignore.
