NPs from around the country gathered March 30-April 1 in Washington D.C. to discuss legislative issues and advocate for legislation impacting NP practice. Speakers from the White House, Federal Trade Commission, Congressional Offices, AARP, and current as well as former Members of Congress shared their knowledge and expertise on the role of NPs in the health care arena, the 2014 political environment and key NP issues.
Attendees visited more than 170 Congressional offices to stress the important role that NPs play in the health care system and how the elimination of federal barriers will improve access to health care for millions of Americans.
