Review the “” series presented by the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing organization. Watch the recorded video title “Creating an Advocacy Action Plan” found in Course Tips. Based on what you have learned, create a brief summary (less than 100 words) of the process you will use to create your advocacy action plan.

Search the internet and WGU Library for information on building policy advocacy in nursing. Learn more about nursing’s role in policy by visiting the National League for Nursing (NLN), site and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), site. Note the toolkits and resources available. Using what you have learned from your research, create a goal for moving your policy brief forward.  
Before a policy can be formulated, it must first command attention or it will not be included on the policymakers agenda. After you have identified an issue and created a policy brief, you will need to draw attention to your policy brief so it can be included as an agenda item. This is the first stage in the public policy cycle, which is called . To start the agenda-setting phase, create a list with contact information of your local, state, and federal policymakers (e.g. Legislator, County Commissioner, School Board President, Mayor, Director of Public Health, etc.). For Federal legislators, start with to find your state’s representatives.  
Using the contact information you assembled, contact one of the policymakers from your contact list to inquire about the process for agenda-setting. If the policymaker does not respond to your request for information in a timely fashion, search the internet to learn about the process for agenda-setting. (Note: You are not sharing your policy change recommendation. You are simply inquiring about the process for agenda setting.)  
Based on the agenda setting process you identified, create an action plan that includes five strategies you will use to begin the process of informing the media and stakeholders of the importance of your identified policy issue.  
Create a 3–5 minute video reflection discussing your Phase 1 CPE. If you have trouble with the GoReact link, you can copy and paste the URL directly into your browser: https://lrps.wgu.edu/provision/173986697 What insights did you gain from the experience of researching and planning for policy advocacy? Are there things you would do differently next time you are involved in policy advocacy? Provide encouraging and constructive comments to the video reflections of two peers in GoReact.
