Talking Our Walk: RN Patient Advocacy in the Public Sphere

A Medicare for All Leadership Development Workshop (4 Contact Hours)

Workshop Times: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Nurses are on the frontlines of our acute healthcare crisis. They see the impact of our current health care system—driven by the private insurance industry, for-profit hospital systems, and big pharma—on their patients every single day. Because nurses work directly with human beings when they are in their most vulnerable, least dignified of states, nurses have a special vantage point into how to fix our broken health care system. This workshop develops, deepens, and broadens this vantage point by preparing nurses to (1) connect their experience at the bedside to the dire need for a more humane health care system based on the needs of their patients and not on private pain and profit; and (2) expand their patient advocacy beyond the bedside and into the public sphere.

Workshop is free to California Nurses Association/National Nurses United members and student nurses. Participants will be notified by U.S. mail and by email if workshop is cancelled.

NNU at-large membership is only available for RNs in non-NNU represented facilities.
