Welcome to Legislative Corner

This page is based on one of the most important core functions of our professional association. The Legislative Corner provides healthcare trends and disseminates this information to the membership. Our goal is to assist nurses to work with legislators and candidates to address the issues that are important to nurses and the communities we serve.
