The Role of the Nursing Leader as a Policy Change Agent

Examine U.S. healthcare policy structures and the role of the nursing leader as a change agent at the public policy table.

You will choose one federal-level healthcare policy issue that interests you. As a change agent, you will write a “tweet” to one of your federal legislators outlining what the issue is and why it is important. You will be as concise and mindful of their time as possible.

The “tweet” will address the following:

  • The current policy;
  • The need for change;
  • The suggested change;
  • The cost implications.
