Nurse Attorneys as Leaders, Advocates, & Legislators

Representation matters. Diverse voices at policy-making tables lead to public policy that is more representative of the community it serves. However, nursing’s voice is missing from many of those tables. We now know the number of nurses in elected office is decreasing, not increasing. Let’s change that! During this webinar we will discuss the importance of representation in politics, why nurse attorneys are uniquely qualified to run for elected office, and how to get started. There are 3.5 million nurses in the United States and while we won’t all run for office, the millions of us that don’t can help those that do.

Learner Objectives

  1. Define “representation” in the political context. Identify the skills and expertise that makes nurse attorneys uniquely qualified to run for elected office at every level - local, state, or federal. 
  2. Describe what the participant can do to increase the representation of nurses in elected office.
