Nurse Advocacy Day 2021

2021 MO Nurse Advocacy Day | On-Demand

Missouri Nurse Advocacy Day is intended to increase awareness of the political process for all nurses and nursing students. The event expands participants’ understanding of the legislative process and provides them with effective techniques for advocating for their patients and practice.

The 2021 Missouri Nurse Advocacy Day will be delivered in two parts this year:

  • Part 1) a live panel presentation provided via ZOOM on March 3, 2021 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm, and
  • Part 2) a virtual, on-demand program, that will be available from February 17 through April 15 to those pre-registered – registrants will have around 60 days to view the pre-recorded educational sessions

On-Demand Presentations

Becoming Advocates for Nursing Using One Strong Voice – Heidi Lucas, MPA
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Workshop – Rebeccah Bennett
Medicaid in Missouri: Back to Basics – Ally Siegler, Amy Blouin and Casey Hanson
