1. Political Activism
Many careers are influenced by government regulations. Health care is one of those careers,
similar to education, in which workers are hesitant to be involved in the political process. In
order to advance the cause of quality patient care, it is very important that doctorally prepared
advanced practice nurses get involved in the political process.
This assignment will prepare you to determine what policy you may want to be involved in
changing by creating an objective policy brief. A policy brief is a concise summary of a particular
issue, the policy options to deal with it, and some recommendations on the best option. This
assignment consists of two parts.
General Requirements:
Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:
 Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA
Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.
 This assignment requires that at least two additional scholarly research sources related to
this topic and at least one in-text citation from each source.
 This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment
to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
 You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. A link to the LopesWrite
technical support articles is located in Class Resources if you need assistance.
 Upload both parts of the assignment to the assignment drobox.
 Learners will submit this assignment using the assignment dropbox in the digital
classroom. In addition, learners must upload this deliverable to the Learner Dissertation
Page (LDP) in the DNP PI Workspace for later use.
Directions:
Part 1: In 500-750 words, address the following:
1. Identify a current health care policy in your community or state. Georgia
2. Research the issue and determine your personal stance based on the current evidence.
Part 2:
1. Locate the contact information for a state, local, or federal official for your area.
2. Locate information regarding the official's stance on the issue.
3. Send the official a letter or email that explains your position and offers suggestions on
how the official should move forward with the agenda from your policy brief.

Benchmark – Comprehensive Assessment Part Two: Outcomes and Reflection
The DNP comprehensive assessment provides learners the opportunity to demonstrate their
achievement of core and specialty DNP competencies. It is also an appraisal of learners' ability to
integrate and synthesize knowledge within the context of their scholarly and practice interests and
their readiness to complete the DPI Project. The two-part comprehensive assessment includes
evaluation of work completed throughout the program and a final synthesis and self-reflection
demonstrating achievement of programmatic outcomes. In Part One of the assessment, learners
were required to collect and review coursework deliverables and practice immersion hours
completed in the program thus far. In Part Two, learners are required to synthesize and reflect on
their learning and prioritize work for their DPI Project.
