Advocacy and Nurse-Patient Ratios_x000D_
1. PAGE 1: HEADING: My Personal/Professional Strategies to Increase My Power (Level 1) ONE PAGE ONLY_x000D_
_x000D_
• Using the Abood article as a basis, describe the strategies and/or the “power(s)” YOU would use professionally and or personally as a nurse to persuade that a busy legislator. Use “I_x000D_
would/will…” terminology,” NOT “the nurse/nurses” or “you” terminology (referring to the reader)._x000D_
_x000D_
• How would you prepare YOURSELF, i.e., more education, organization memberships, etc.? Be specific._x000D_
_x000D_
• How would YOU involve other nurses and potential patients (the public) in your strategies. i.e. petitions, meetings, etc.? Be specific._x000D_
2. PAGE 2: HEADING: Legislator Information Sheet (Level 1)_x000D_
_x000D_
 _x000D_

ONE PAGE ONLY–BULLET POINTS ( ● ) information sheet. Using the Aiken article, compose a one (1) page legislator information sheet on nurse-patient ratios (see Aiken et al.) for a busy state legislator who will only have time to read bullet points:

_x000D_
• Bullet points ( ● ) are brief, pertinent, accurate, research-and/or data based statements that emphasize the advantages to his/her constituents (patients). Summarize and paraphrase. Be convincing! Citations are required for each of the bullet points. No more than one (1) page. NOTE: Bullet points can be easily inserted into a document using MS WORD._x000D_
_x000D_
• INCLUDE AN INTRODUCTION: To provide context for the legislator, include a short (1-2 sentences) introductory statement at the top of page 2 to the legislator which explains the reason for the bullet points._x000D_
_x000D_
• FOCUS ON PATIENTS/FAMILIES: Compose nurse-patient ratio statements that focus on advantages to patients/families, not nurses. An example: Higher nurse-patient ratios increase nurse burnout. Nurse burnout results in higher attrition and less job satisfaction which impacts the continuity and quality of patient care._x000D_
_x000D_
• APA FORMAT CITATIONS NOTE: Many other research studies are cited in the Aiken et al. article. If you cite these other research studies, they are considered secondary sources (See APA Manual, p. 178, 6.17). For example, the following is an example of a bullet point with a citation from a secondary source:_x000D_

Patients diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction had a lower mortality rate as the number of registered nurse hours per patient day increased (Sochalski et al. [as cited in Aiken et al., 2010])._x000D_
Aiken at al. is then used as the source on the reference list.
