Paper Information:
The purpose of this assignment is to empower graduate nursing students to advocate, influence policy, inform others, and develop public speaking skills.
This is a 2- part assignment: Part 1 is the written portion and Part 2 the elevator speech, is presented to your classmates in a voice-over PowerPoint. The link to this voice-over PowerPoint should be uploaded to the Week 4 Discussion Board.
According to Milstead (2013) “full integration of the policy process becomes evident when professional nurses discern early the social implications of health problems, seize the opportunity to inform public officials with whom the nurses have credible relationships, provide objective data and subjective personal stories that help translate big problems down to a level of understanding, propose alternative solutions that acknowledge reality, and participate in the evaluation process to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of the outcomes” (p. 19).
