Nurses work in a challenge work setting; therefore, nurses must recognize the current issues of the facility and the health care system as well as comprehend and utilize the optimal advocacy strategies to be successful and accountable professionals. American Nurse Association (ANA) provides five resources for workforce advocacy programs which include: 1. Identify mechanisms within health care systems that provide opportunities for RNs to affect institutional policies.2.Develop conflict resolution models for use within organizations that address RNsâ€™ concerns about patient care and delivery issues.3.Seek legislative solutions for workplace problems by reviewing issues of concern to nurses in -employment settings and introducing appropriate legislation. 4. Develop legal centers for nurses, which could provide legal support and decision-making advice as a last recourse to resolve workplace issues. Other advocacy strategies are creating organizational policies like nurse staffing. Nurse staffing can be easily influenced by the nurses participating in the nurse management council of the hospital. Empowering the nurses can help in the improvement of the environment in which the nurses work while enhancing delivery of quality health care. Additionally, at the place of work, nurses can be provided with decision support and ways of resolving conflicts at the point of delivering healthcare (Tomajan, 2012).
