Grading Category: Discussions
Using the NP Association links in the Nurse Practitioner Interactive Map, identify your state NP association and the current political action initiatives they are currently working on. State professional organizations will have an advocacy team working on the state initiatives determined by the organization, so look for an advocacy tab, political action coalition (PAC) tab, or policy issues tab on the home website.
- How do these issues restrict your practice and how will your practice change if these issues are resolved?
- Identify your role in addressing these political movements.
If your state NP association does not have any political action initiatives, look at either a national professional organization’s political initiatives, such as AANP, or a state health initiative, such as immunization rate, obesity rate, texting laws or the like and complete the same instructions.
Reply to two of your classmates, either classmates from different states or classmates who identify a different political issue from what you identified.
Please refer to the Grading Rubric for details on how this activity will be graded. The grading for the number of reply posts is based on individual Discussion Board instructions. If the rubric indicates a different number for reply posts, you will not be graded down, as long as you have followed the reply post instructions.
For this assignment to be considered complete, you must post your initial response and address all prompts related to the APRN Political Action State Initiatives by Day 3. In addition, you must reply to two classmates from different states or classmates who focused on an issue different than your own by Day 7.
