Free Webinar: The 114th U.S. Congress - A 101 for Nurses

The Nursing Community will be presenting a free webinar on January 29, 2015 from 2:00-3:00 PM ET - "The 114th U.S. Congress: A 101 for Nurses".

On January 6, 2015, members of the 114th U.S. Congress convened in our nation’s capital to begin a new legislative session. This Congress will need to work collaboratively to address major policies impacting health care. Join the Nursing Community for a webinar discussing how the political landscape will likely influence policies of interest. The speakers will provide listeners with an overview of the political makeup of the House of Representatives and the Senate, how Congressional dynamics influence the legislative process, pressing issues for Congress to address, and what nurses can do to engage as informed advocates.

One contact hour will be awarded to those who attend the entire webinar and submit an evaluation. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
