Political participation behaviors of nurse-midwives

, : Political participation behaviors of nurse-midwives. Journal of Nurse-Midwifery 36(3): 184-191

Political participation, which is promoted by nurse-midwifery leaders, is a widely studied topic in this country. Yet, there is little data that describes political participation among health care providers such as nurse-midwives. The descriptive findings presented here are from a national survey of a random sample of members of the American College of Nurse-Midwives. The data indicate that nurse-midwives are inclined to be liberal and Democrats and they believe that individuals such as themselves can influence governmental activities. As in the general population of the country, the electoral act of voting is the predominant political activity. Nurse-midwives are more apt to demonstrate nonelectoral political behaviors in regard to women's issues. Overall, there is a general assumption that the representatives of the ACNM membership maintain the responsibility for political action.
