2020 Policy Summit 

2020 House of Delegates

June 5-6, 2020

June 6, 2020

Join us for the 2020 Policy Summit: Building Nursing Influence Through Policy Capacity

Nursing is one of the largest health care professions in the world, with more than 300,000 nurses in Texas alone. However, nurses still face multiple factors that limit their full potential to influence policy. The ever-changing health care environment requires nurses to play key roles in the formulation of, development of and implementation of health care policy.

Join us to increase the collective capacity of nursing’s influence in policy! Learn from statewide experts on how nurses can affect policy development and implementation — from analyzing policy to establishing relationships with policy makers to running for office —and how to develop action plans for expanding individual capacity for policy influence.
