Workplace violence- any physical assault, threatening behavior or verbal abuse in the workplace as defined by NIOSH
To take a proactive role in nursing policy, I need to have an email to my legislator about a current nursing issue. Write a concise, professionally worded e-mail to one of the state-level legislators about a current nursing issue that is important. I will attach a sample of how the email needs to be formatted. I will fill out name of my legislator etc.
- Identify the ways nurses can personally take part in shaping future nursing care.
In addition: at the bottom of the email, instead of a reference, I need:
The Issue; three reasons or examples
The Requested Action; three reasons or examples
The issue/action requested and examples DO NOT have to be lengthy. It is just a model to show an organization of your thoughts for the nursing issues being emailed about.
Here are the choice of topics that can be covered.
- Workplace violence- any physical assault, threatening behavior or verbal abuse in the workplace as defined by NIOSH. ANA recognizes workplace violence as a problem and strives to protect nurses.
Lateral violence (bullying), this happens a lot with student nurses as well
