Help finding healthcare issues under currently under legislation

By Steffanie Hendrix posted 03-25-2020 01:18 AM

Hello everyone,

I'm working on my RN-BSN and I'm having trouble with an assignment. I hate to admit this, but I've never been involved in the "politic" side. I've always been involved with things within my hospital system but never the "bigger picture." 
With my current assignment I am asked to look up 5 healthcare issues currently under legislation in my state (ohio). It states they can be found on "the states health care websites." However, when I go to the Ohio Department of Health, I'm having trouble navigating and finding them on the page. 

Does anyone know how to navigate their way around the ODH page better or know where to find these? I feel I've truly tried to figure this out myself but I'm not having any luck. 
I'm spinning my wheels.

Now that I'm reading more about the true political arena of nursing, I feel this is a source I will frequent now that I'm more educated and interested.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Hi Stephanie,
So sorry for the delay in responding.  You can find current legislation here. There is a "search keyword" option.  I can also email you a report that outlines all the bills that ONA is currently watching.  My email is Please feel free to contact me directly if you have further questions.
