Sept. 20-21, 2023
Join nurse leaders from across the country to champion legislation on AONL’s Virtual Advocacy Day. Learn how to advocate effectively – sharing your story about the impact of national issues on your patients, community and nursing teams. Legislators want to hear directly from you how these issues affect their constituents and what they can do to support you.
Why should you participate?
Virtual Advocacy Day is an opportunity to elevate the voice of nursing leadership without leaving home. Using a mix of on-demand and live interactive courses, AONL will teach you how to create compelling advocacy messages, connecting your personal stories with AONL’s congressional asks. Whether you send a letter, create a video message, use social media or have an in-district meeting, any of these methods allow you to communicate with your legislators about how they can support nurses and address the nursing workforce crisis.
Registration Deadline: Sept. 18
Registration Fee: $50
Groups of 5 or more from the same facility (physical location) save $5 per registrant. Discounts do not apply toward individuals within the same system.
