7. What feedback did you get from your policymaker? What actions are you expecting of him/her/them? How did you leave things? Carefully review the Guidelines and Example below.
Guidelines for Legislative Visits
Most nurses are uncomfortable approaching policymakers, regardless of how prepared they are and how knowledgeable or passionate they are about their policy issue. Nurses tend to grossly underestimate their power and don’t initially understand that policymakers are receptive and anxious to have their input.
After you have selected your policy issue and have thoroughly researched it, develop a message or proposal that is clear and succinct. Be sure that you know the appropriate policymaker and the staff that you approach for your issue. Most students in this course will select a local-level policymaker such as a member of their city council or their local school board.
Example
Student Y is enrolled in: Healthcare Policy. This student has worked for several years as an emergency department nurse at a local hospital and also volunteers his time at the local community teen center. Student Y is passionate about preventing motor-vehicle accidents in the teen population. He has adolescent children of his own and has seen firsthand the tragic results of careless/distracted driving among teens. Of special interest to student Y is the issue surrounding using cell phones and especially text messaging while driving. Student Y believes this to be a significant and growing problem—both locally and nationally.
