The role that the electoral process and government plays in one’s daily work and family life is evident in many ways. Many issues that affect daily life, such as family planning, is often structured through policies set by the government; an example includes funding and defunding of Planned Parenthood.
Nurses make up the largest portion of the health care workforce. Nurses also represent a significant proportion of staff at health facilities, schools, community practices and other clinical settings focused on health (Martin, 2018). Nurses offer a multitude of experience and unique expertise that bring perspective to the electoral process and processes in the government (Martin, 2018). An important aspect of health policy advocacy is in establishing networks and developing relationships that allow the nurse advocate to learn from others and share what she/he knows (Mason, Gardner, Outlaw & O’Grady, 2016).
Some of the policy issues that might drive nurses to lobby Congress that directly affect the patient, family, and community relate to advocating to combat childhood obesity and fighting the opioid epidemic. Nurses can influence policy at both the national and local levels by becoming part of the agenda of action for health promotion. Another pressing issue affecting my community right now is insuring the uninsured and expanding services to vulnerable populations. Many development projects and programs have succeeded because of the strategies developed by nurse advocates and the relationships cultivated both within and outside government with key decision-makers and people of influence.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
