how political activism has influenced the profession of nursing as well as advanced practice and the delivery of healthcare. Choose a nursing association (i.e. AANP, ANCC, ANA, among others). How is it governed? What is the legislative agenda of the association? How is the agenda developed? How is the agenda communicated to the membership and does it partner with any coalitions? Does the partnership influence policy on a national or state level, and if so, how? When you graduate, do you plan to join this association? Why or why not?
