Nurse Advocacy Day
MONA's annual Nurse Advocacy Day is intended to increase awareness of the political process for all nurses and nursing students. This day long event expands participants' understanding of the legislative process and provides them with effective techniques for advocating for their patients and practice. Nurses are an integral part of Missouri’s healthcare system.
The event focused on why legislative advocacy is important, identifying MONA’s key legislative priorities, as well as sharing what is needed from each nurse in the state to be successful at the Capitol. A trip to the Capitol to observe the legislative process in action and visit with legislators is also a part of the day's activities.
