 Just think about the impact if each of the over 35,000 APRNs in the state took one day to visit our state capital and be a part of the legislative process!

On Tuesday Jan 14, please arrive at the lower level Capitol Cafeteria by 8:30 a.m. to meet with your fellow APRNs. Please dress in business attire with your white lab coat. Here you can grab a coffee while you discuss the handouts and the organization of the day.
Note: If you were unable to schedule a meeting with your legislator, feel free to stop by their office to request a meeting that day. You can also coordinate with other attendees and go to meetings together.
