A. Go to https://www.govtrack.us/ or http://www.nln.org/advocacy-public-policy/government-affairs-actioncenter.
B. Choose a Senate or House Bill (S. or H.B.) of interest to you. I live in Iowa, I don’t care what you use.

ANA Standards of Practice that could impact staff and delivery of care:
• Standard 1. – Assessment
