Nursing advocacy is essential to the profession and nursing care spans broad topics related to scope of practice, education, and licensure as well as care delivery and treatment. This session helps nurses prepare to advocate at the local, state, and/or national level, addressing opportunities for advocacy as well as what skills and knowledge they will need to do so. Practical steps to engage in political advocacy and current areas that require nursing advocacy are discussed. Presenters share their own journey and the impact and role of nursing associations and societies are highlighted.
