You have been asked to address a group of the American Association for Retired Persons (AARP) about the roles that the following types of nurses can offer to adults over 50. In one role you are a Geriatric Nurse Specialist in another role you are a REGISTERED Nurse with a BSN.

Explain the difference in the two roles above and the potential impact of each of those roles could have on the health of seniors. Be sure to explain the NURSING role so that your lay audience can understand. You will want to cover the roles separately and what differences in the types of services each could offer.

Knowing the AARP is one of the most influential lobbying groups in the US, are there specific legislative agendas that you would like them to support in expanding the role of nurses?
