Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
The focus of this discussion board is to facilitate you to think about how you will become more involved in your profession as you continue your journey in nursing. This will include you thinking about which professional nursing organization will fit your professional needs and goals best. As I wrote last week, I want you to think about what messages are consistently being shared through your readings and activities in MSN 601. Is nursing in 1890, 1943, 1977, 1990, 2018, 2030, 2050 the same? If so, how? If not, why? You are the leaders of today and tomorrow….the future is yours. What will your role be?
1. Explore a national or state level professional organization, special interest group, or coalition website and address the following components:
State the organization/group/coalition. What is the role of the organization/group/coalition in formulating policy?
What strategies does the organization/group/coalition use to influence nurses in promoting advocacy and electoral politics?
Outline benefits for members.
How does the organization/group/coalition address globalization in nursing practice?
2. Create a plan for increasing your involvement in professional nursing organizations and advocacy. Address both professional nursing organization involvement and advocacy in your plan. Your plan should include 3 goals.
