Save the Date: Perioperative nurses needed for 2014 nurse lobby days

Publish Date: 1/7/2014

Professional nurses know they must advocate not only for their patients, but for the profession.  Because nurses are the nation’s most trusted profession, legislators rely on them to help understand the myriad of clinical and health policy issues that come across their desks during legislative sessions.  It is important for legislators to get to know their nurse constituents.  One way to meet your legislators, learn the important policy issues affecting nursing practice in your state, and offer your expertise in perioperative nursing and patient safety in the operating room is to attend your state’s nurse lobby day.  

Following is a list of upcoming nurse lobby days.  If your state is not listed, contact your state nurses association to learn whether there is a RN lobby day planned for 2014.  You can also work with AORN government affairs and your state council to schedule your own perioperative nurses lobby day.
