Search the internet and WGU Library for information on building policy advocacy in nursing. Learn more about nursing’s role in policy by visiting the National League for Nursing (NLN), Advocacy & Public Policy site and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), Policy & Advocacy site. Note the toolkits and resources available. Using what you have learned from your research, create a SMART goal for moving your policy brief forward.
Before a policy can be formulated, it must first command attention or it will not be included on the policymakers agenda. After you have identified an issue and created a policy brief, you will need to draw attention to your policy brief so it can be included as an agenda item. This is the first stage in the public policy cycle, which is called agenda-setting. To start the agenda-setting phase, create a list with contact information of your local, state, and federal policymakers (e.g. Legislator, County Commissioner, School Board President, Mayor, Director of Public Health, etc.). For Federal legislators, start with https://www.congress.gov to find your state’s representatives.
