Students, NPNY Visit Albany for 2018 Advocacy Day

Notice: This item is marked as outdated.

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Priority: Informational

On March 14, 2018, graduate nursing students joined Dr. Norma Hannigan and members of the Nurse Practitioners of New York (NPNY) to attend their annual Advocacy Day in Albany, where they met with lawmakers to discuss issues aimed at advocating for the Nurse Practitioner profession. Advocacy Day has been a tradition at HBSON since 2000.

The day-long trip provided participants with opportunities to identify issues of importance to NPs practicing in New York state and to discuss relevant bills that are pending in both houses. Students learned about the legislative process, including the relevant committees in Albany and their role in shaping legislation and policy.

The event teaches students and working NPs alike about the elements of a successful lobby visit and effective ways to align their positions with legislators' stands on issues. Some students and NPNY members were able to meet with their own legislators as constituents. These adventures start out with nervous, unsure students and end with ones who have found their voice and are able to speak to lawmakers about issues of importance to us all.
