Nursing Legislative Agenda Coalition

Leading up to each legislative session, TNA hosts a series of meetings with other nursing organizations to identify significant nursing and health care related issues that the Texas Legislature needs to address. These nursing organizations make up the Nursing Legislative Agenda Coalition (NLAC).  Once NLAC has identified the legislative issues on which nursing should focus, it works to achieve a consensus of opinion on what the coalition's position will be on each issue. What results is the Nursing Legislative Agenda and during the session, coalition members endorse and work to enact the agenda.  NLAC also serves as a body for building a unified nursing position on other legislation important to nurses and their patients. 

Below is a list of NLAC members from 2009 that helped shape the 2011 Nursing Legislative Agenda.
