Microvolunteer Opportunities


On February 18 -19, TNA invited nurses from all over Texas to Austin to meet with and educate state lawmakers on the current legislative issues affecting the nursing profession and health care for all Texans.

We had a record turnout for 2019's Nurse Day at the Capitol, and with nurses from across the state coming to the Capitol to advocate for the profession, we were able to make sure nursing's voice was heard loud and clear at the Texas Legislature.

Check out the photos from Nurse Day and the advocacy resources at Nurse Day at the Capitol, and get inspired to advocate for the profession and Texas patients!

 Nurses in Office

The Nurses in Office initiative aims to encourage and support registered nurses running for elected offices, starting locally and growing eventually to state and national levels.

Whether you are running yourself or want to volunteer to help a nurse run, the Nurse Campaign Support Center provides resources and connections.

The Nurse Talks Empowerment Series is designed to bring more nurses into conversations that can inform TNA’s decision-making processes and policy priorities to ultimately benefit all nurses across the state.
