Nurses are resources and educators to local legislators. Since it is a citizen led legislature, representatives can be pizza shop owners, lawyers, tech professionals or of any trade/profession and may know nothing about nursing. It is imperative that nurses have the ability and confidence to discuss and educate these representatives on the work of nurses and issues of importance to nursing and the public.
Therefore, speaking with local representatives requires some background knowledge. The ANA and your state’s professional nursing association such as the Florida Nurses Association, has many resources for the nurse when it comes to legislative advocacy. Having the support and knowledge of these issues is crucial.
Please review the educational resources located under the Week 8 Content Area to assist and guide you for this discussion. Then, complete and submit the following:
Choose a health or nursing related issue or area of concern in your community or state. This could include health concerns, environmental issues, nursing issues, or legislation of importance to nurses and the public.
Research the issue or bill and create an “elevator speech” or “pitch” of the issue (how it relates to the nursing profession, patient outcomes, and your support or nursing’s support for, or against, the issue.  Your “pitch” should be long enough to get your point across and include statements of evidence (about one minutes in length).
Find your local representatives and identify the committees they serve on, especially committees that are about healthcare and health policy.
In your discussion question response, present the issue and associated legislation (if applicable), the population affected, and possible strategies where nurses can have the greatest impact. Include your elevator speech and the local representative(s) you would present your elevator speech to. Better yet, video your speech right in this discussion! Don’t forget to reference any sources of your research. You will still need a scholarly nursing journal article per the discussion rubric.
So your post might look like this (Example)
Professor and Class:
The issue I chose to address is … ([present the issue and associated legislation (if applicable), the population affected, and possible strategies where nurses can have the greatest impact. This is where your text and journal article will be included].
My elevator speech:
Dear Congressman Smith,
I am writing to you today about Senate Bill ….. {make sure you present the bill or issue and make it clear what you want them to do like support a bill or vote no or provide more funding for the issue].
In your response to peers, you may debate or support an issue presented by your peers. Please choose at least one different issue for your peer responses. Include additional insight, opinions, and professional resources. Remember to maintain a respectful and professional tone for all posts.
Here are some resources to get you started:
-American Nurses Association (ANA) Policy and Advocacy. Here you can find state legislative issues the ANA is promoting across the country.
-American Nurses Association RNAction.org Here you can see all the current issues and action center information
-Florida Nurses Association- Advocacy https://www.floridanurse.org/page/Advocacy

Submission Instructions:
Your initial post should be  formatted and cited in current APA style with support from at least 2 academic sources. Your initial post is worth 8 points.
You should respond to at least two of your peers by extending, refuting/correcting, or adding additional nuance to their posts.

Week 7 Discussion COLLAPSE Professor Allen and classmates, Healthcare in Americ

Week 7 Discussion
COLLAPSE
Professor Allen and classmates,
Healthcare in America is available two ways: by purchasing coverage from a private corportation or through the national health insurance system we all know as Medicare. While this allows patients to access public healthcare facilities at any income level, it does leave a discrepency in quality of care and access to resources for patients using government assistance. When compared to Austria, a country with social medicine, both countries have significant discrepencies in health care. However, Austria demonstrates a higher score on the Healthcare Access and Quality scale when compared to the United States (McAlister, 2021). Research has shown that patients in the United States are less likely to follow up with care or refuse recommended care due to the high costs of pharmaceuticals and out of pocket costs. Black characterizes the American healthcare system as “high cost” with a “large number of uninsured patients. (2020, p. 331).” The pit falls of our healthcare system are easily recognizable in the patients I care for today.
As I mentioned above, the costs associated with care in the United States significantly inhibit both citizens and non citizens alike from receiving adequate care. If a patient is a non citizen that has lawful permanent residence, a work or student visa, or is a refugee, they are eligible for coverage through federal or state insurance, or private insurance can be purchased. What would be referred to as an “illegal” immigrant is not eligible for government assistance, or to purchase private insurance. Considering there are anywhere between 16 and 27 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, that is a lot of people to be uninsured (Capps, 2018).
I believe that access to healthcare should be a basic human right. As a nurse, I am taught to treat every patiently equally and fairly, no matter their race, social status, gender, etc. Unfortunately, far too often, instead of providing preventative care to those who cannot afford insurance or regular doctor visits, we are providing late stage care for unmanaged chronic illnesses. Not only is this counter productive, but I believe we could be saving so much time and money, and exhausted resources, by providing everyone with healthcare.

Discuss: Management of Bowel Elimination Disorder
Original Post
Your discussion assignment is intended to help you apply concepts to learn and to improve future performance. Each post should be answered independently and contain a minimum of 400 words. Writing must include formal language (i.e., professional language, medical terminology, spelling, punctuation, and grammar). Use evidence-based research to support your response (preferably Hinkle & Cheever, 2018).
When reflecting on the care of Stan Checketts, what are signs and symptoms you can assess in the next client you care for who might be at risk for dehydration?
Discuss assessment and expected findings in a small bowel obstruction.
What would you do differently if you were to repeat this scenario? How would your client care change?
Please refer to student post below. Assignment should look like the post below. Get the information needed (Care of Stan Checketts)  from the post below and make sure to use hinkle as one of the reference
Care of Stan Checketts
Post
Hypovolemia occurs when water and electrolytes are lost in the same proportion as they exist in normal body fluids (Hinkle & Cheever, 2018). Some of the changes noted during the care of Stan Checketts is his abnormal electrolyte values: Na+ 150 (high), Cl- 108 (high), BUN 42 (high) & Creatinine 1.9 (high) contribute to the clinical manifestations of feeling nauseous and very dizzy as well as signs and symptoms of metabolic acidosis that vary with the verity of the acidosis but include headache, confusion, drowsiness, increased respiratory rate & depth, nausea, and vomiting (Hinkle & Cheever, 2018). After assessing a patient who is hypovolemic, it is imperative to act fast on the next steps to manage this state of health. Hypovolemic shock is the most common type of shock… can be caused by external fluid losses, as in traumatic blood loss, or by internal fluid shifts, as in severe dehydration, severe edema or ascites (Hinkle & Cheever, 2018). As a nurse, we should be able to review the labs we have received and determine how to correct the underlying cause of the fluid loss as quickly as possible (Hinkle & Cheever, 2018). If I were to see the signs and symptoms once again of those patients who might be at risk of dehydration and who also has nausea, vomiting and dizziness, there are medications available to use PRN such as Ondansetron, which is mostly prescribed to treat nausea. Another major main point in correcting dehydration in a patient as well as correcting their electrolyte imbalance, replacing their fluids will ease their sensation of feeling dehydrated through the use of Normal Saline (0.9% NaCl) IV Bolus is frequently given to adjust the electrolyte imbalance. Because the goal of the fluid replacement is to restore intravascular volume, it is necessary to administer fluids that will remain in the intravascular compartment (Hinkle & Cheever, 2018).
A small bowel obstruction consists of a complete blockage of the small intestines that can be caused by an inflammatory bowel disorder. A small bower obstruction causes edema, congestion, necrosis, and evential rupture or perforation of the intestinal wall, with a resultant peritonitis (Hinkle & Cheever, 2018). To assess for a small obstruction, an x-ray of the abdomen and CT scan are able to identidy the abnormal quantities of gas, gluid, or both in the intestines and sometimes collapsed distal bowel (Hinkle & Cheever, 2018). We can also use a blood pannel such as a CBC and monitor their electrolyte values for any imbalances. These laboratory testing will show the reasoning of the signs of dehydration in a patient. The signs of dehydration become evident: intense thirst, drowsinessm generalized malaise, aching, and a parched tongue and mucus membrane (Hinkle & Cheever, 2018).
As soon as I had entered the room and performed hand hygiene, introduced self + role, the patient is found lying in a supine position stating he was feeling dizzy and nauseous, so I helped him in to a Fowler’s position to reduce the current symptoms and much as possible. Because taking his vital signs are an imperative part of my assessment before administering any medication, while taking his vital signs, I would ask the patient if they were allergic to any medication or other substances, ask if they are in any pain, and if they are still feeling dizzy and nauseous and offer medication for pain + nausea if their vitals are all within normal values for the patient.

Week 7 Discussion
Professor and classmates,
Healthcare in the United States is a mixture of private and public sectors, which is like most other countries. I am actually from Canada, a country where healthcare, in comparison, is very different. In the United States, most care is private and about 70 % of our hospitals are non-profit and privately run. Whereas In Canada, we use a single payer system, which according to Lee et al. (2021), is a publicly funded healthcare system that is the source of national pride in Canada (p.30). This type of system (single payer) operationally includes no direct cost to patients for medically necessary hospital and physician services (p.30). In the U.S., healthcare is increasingly expensive and complex, which inhibits the health of its citizens. According to Black (2020), although the U.S. supports some of the most up to date health technologies, highly sophisticated procedures, and well-educated providers, many people do not have the basic care they need (p.312). 
Access to healthcare is a basic human right, and therefore should be recognized as such. In an article by American nurse (2012), they discuss the affordable care act and how it gave millions of people greater protection against losing or being denied health coverage, as well as better access to primary and prevention services. According to the article, the ANA also agrees that society has a moral obligation to provide basic health care to all people and access to healthcare shouldn’t be limited by an individual’s ability to pay (American Nurse, 2012). I couldn’t agree more with this statement, since as nurses we know first-hand that preventative care and early-intervention are necessary in hope of improving patient outcomes and saving lives.
