Abstract

Nurses care for individuals, families, communities, states, nations, and the health of the planet. While developing relationships with those for whom they care, nurses also develop relationships with and partner with other interdisciplinary team members to impact policies to improve health for all. The 4.2 million nurses across the United States are uniquely positioned to address health-care needs alongside their interdisciplinary colleagues. This article provides a template for educating about policy so that nurses and other interdisciplinary team members learn how to address health-care topics at the policy level in partnership with one another.
