Health Care Policy: The Nurse's Crucial Role

As the legislative liaison for the AAACN Board of Directors, I recently had the privilege of attending the 2003 Nurse in Washington Internship (NIWI) workshop sponsored by the Nursing Organizations Alliance (NOA) and coordinated by Kathleen Smith, RN, BS, CNN.

The workshop, which was held in March in Alexandria, VA, provided a wide range of topics, from the basic legislative process to health care policy. The common thread was the important role of nurses in the legislative process.
