Make a date with democracy!

It’s time to get engaged and get active. As a nurse, you have one of the most trusted and respected voices—it’s time to use it!

During Nurse Legislative Day, you’ll learn how to be a powerful advocate for all patients in Washington.

Learn about the critical issues facing nurses, nursing and health in Washington this year, but most importantly, you’ll discover how you can make a difference in Olympia.
