Course Introduction

The practice of nursing is greatly impacted by the laws and regulations put in place by our state government. This legislative process greatly affects heath care today. Budget changes, patient satisfaction scores, and staffing ratios directly impact quality health care. It is vital for all nurses to be aware of what legislative issues are at the forefront of their nursing practice.

Registered nurses must learn the process of influencing our decision makers who support or oppose legislation that impacts our profession. Becoming empowered to address these issues and communicating knowledge to peers is the first step in impacting our legislative process. Lawmakers need to hear our stories, our concerns and personal knowledge in order for important legislative priorities be supported and become laws.

The webinar is presented by Carol Ann Lemon, RN-BC.
