Nurse Advocacy Day
February 21 @ 7:30 am - 3:30 pm
Missouri Nurse Advocacy Day is intended to increase awareness of the political process for all nurses and nursing students. The day long event expands participants’ understanding of the legislative process and provides them with effective techniques for advocating for their patients and practice.
This event will focus on why legislative advocacy is important, identifying the Missouri Nurses Association’s key legislative priorities, as well as sharing what is needed from each nurse in the state to be successful at the Capitol. The day includes a trip to the Capitol to observe the legislative process in action and visit with legislators.

What is the Midwest Multistate Division? The Kansas State Nurses Association, Missouri Nurses Association and Nebraska Nurses Association formed a collaborative, namely the Midwest Multistate Division (Midwest MSD), with the goal of promoting efficiencies and growth. As part of this collaborative, the Midwest MSD Continuing Nursing Education Unit (CNE Unit) was formed, which is accredited as an ANCC approver and provider of CNE, to address the educational needs of nurses in the Midwest region.
