    Includes Live Event and eLearn Content!

    Legislative Education and Advocacy for Nurses is an annual event hosted by the Connecticut Nurses' Association for nurses of all levels (pre-licensure students to leaders in the field) to hear the important impact of working to support the profession and the health of the public!  

    The pandemic highlighted this more than ever! Ensuring the graduate nurse was able to be hired and begin practicing by extending the time to take the unavailable NCLEX, advocating for PPE in all practice settings, recognizing the care taking place in long term care, corrections, local health departments, and schools!

    Advocacy is not just policy and politics! Working with stakeholders to support healthcare and healthy communities is critical to expanding nurses informing conversations and impacting broader health issues!

    Special Guests from American Nurses Association and state healthcare stakeholders will be joining us to discuss the issues and work!

    Get up to date on

    • Current professional issues related to nursing
    • Legislative and policy initiatives impacting nursing and the public health
    • How to take Action - Share your Voice!
    • Gain insight into nursing and health practice and policy issues from various healthcare national and state stakeholders!
