“The 114th U.S. Congress : A 101 for Nurses” Webinar
On January 6, 2015, members of the 114th U.S. Congress convened in our nation’s capital to begin a new legislative session. This Congress will need to work collaboratively to address major policies impacting health care. Join the Nursing Community for a webinar discussing how the political landscape will likely influence policies of interest. MaryAnne Sapio (American Association of Nurse Practitioners) and Lauren Inouye (American Association of Colleges of Nursing) will provide listeners with an overview of the political makeup of the House of Representatives and the Senate, how Congressional dynamics influence the legislative process, pressing issues for Congress to address, and what nurses can do to engage as informed advocates.
