Register here to attend Nurses’ Lobby Night in Annapolis
Every year, our senators and delegates welcome nurses into their offices to discuss bills that are pending legislative action. Some of these are new bills and some are bills that need to be reintroduced so that they stay in effect. They want to hear from us! Nurses’ Lobby Night is a great opportunity to let your nursing voice be heard.
This year’s Nurses’ Lobby Night will be held on Monday, February 20. AAMC will be providing a shuttle from the hospital – no need to worry about parking downtown.
The care you provide at your patient’s bedside is critical to their health, well-being and recovery. Care goes beyond the bedside. Nurses are highly valued for their care, integrity, knowledge, and advocacy. Lobbying is another chance to advocate for patients and for nurses.
Registration for Maryland Nurses’ Association Lobby Night is now open and there are only a limited number of tickets available, so it is important to register as soon as possible.
To register, visit www.marylandrn.org/Homepage-Category/Upcoming-Events/Registration-for-MNA-2017-Nurses-Night-in-Annapolis-is-now-open-Click-here-to-access-the-registrati.html and click on for the registration web site. The registration deadline is Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 5:00 pm or when capacity is reached, whichever occurs first.
There is a small fee to register to guarantee your seat, which the hospital will reimburse for those who attend. Instructions for reimbursement will be provided at a later date. If you register for and are unable to attend Lobby Night, you will not qualify for the reimbursement.
If you will join us on the shuttle bus please register via this link so we make sure we have spots for everyone: lobby-night-shuttle.eventbrite.com.
