The 2020 legislative session will continue one of the most significant grassroots efforts NCNA has embarked on in a long time! We have been ramping up efforts around school nurse funding, full practice authority for APRNs, and other important policy issues since the beginning of the 2019 session that doesn’t technically end until December of 2020. Some of our issues already have a lot of momentum and we are heading to Jones Street with strong support from influential groups outside of nursing like the AARP, the Rural Center, Americans for Prosperity, and more.
Whether you’re volunteering on Jones Street every week or just cheering us on from afar, NCNA has a wide variety of ways you can help lead #NursingForward® in 2020 and beyond.
Grassroots Advocacy System
Can’t be in Raleigh to meet with legislators in person? This is a great way to make sure your voice is heard! When you sign up, we’ll let you know exactly when we need you to send an email, make a phone call, or post a message on social media – and we make it easy! This is an ideal way to make sure legislators from YOUR district know that nurses are involved and that we’re paying close attention to how they’re voting. Go here to sign up.
NC Nurses PAC
It’s nearly impossible to separate money from politics, and this Political Action Committee is the best way for nurses to make sure that we’re promoting candidates who prioritize issues that improve patient care. The PAC is bi-partisan: it supports any candidate who supports nurses. In the last election cycle we gave to 27 candidates, including all three of the RNs who currently serve in the General Assembly.
