Advocacy: Nurse Day at the Capitol
Share |

 

 

Join nurses from all over Texas on February 18 -19, and let state legislators know how they can help the nursing profession and improve health care for all Texans.

Nurse Day at the Capitol offers nurses the opportunity to speak directly with their state legislators or the legislator’s staff, and educate them on nursing concerns as well as any specific bills that nursing currently supports.

Learn about the nursing issues the Texas Legislature will take on in the 2019 session, become a voice for nursing, and enjoy all the wonders that Austin has to offer at TNA’s 2019 Nurse Day at the Capitol.
