WHAT’S NURSES DAY AT THE CAPITOL
Nurses Day at the Capitol is designed to help nurses in Wisconsin appreciate the importance of their role in influencing health policy and affecting change in their practice. The intent is for nurses to take the information learned at Nurses Day and use it to advocate for better nursing practice and better patient care in their work environments and communities, and ultimately to advance the profession of nursing. There is an opportunity to arrange a meeting with your legislator and/or tour the Capitol in the afternoon. About 500 RNs, APRNs, student nurses, and nursing faculty participate each year!
