Nurse Legislative Day

Make a date with democracy.

Monday, February 24, 2014

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!

Legislators and the public recognize that our daily experiences caring for the health of our patients and communities give us valuable and unique insight. You advocate for your patients every day. 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.
