The recent elections and Washington’s attempts to address the fiscal challenges of the United States bear on the market for nurses’ services and shape nursing practice. Two experienced advocates from the nursing community in Washington, DC, will outline major federal policies and programs shaping nursing, including Medicare, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act, and project anticipated actions by Congress and the federal government that affect nurses’ prospects. Participants will have question and answer time, and will be provided guidance for taking effective advocacy actions to advance nursing interests in Washington.
