I'm enrolled in a graduate-level policy course and was looking to get a few nurse opinions regarding nursing policy in general. They are as follows:
1. How do you do think the public perceives nursing political activism versus how the nursing community views it?
2. What has been your own role in and contribution to nursing political activism?
3. Do you believe that the nursing role as a patient caregiver and political activist are intertwined or independent of each other?
Please include any other demographic information such as pertinent work history and educational background that could give an overview of your experience as a nurse.
Thanks! and I appreciate your help!
