Nurses’ Night at the Legislature

Photo of Legislator DayA health policy event, “Nurses Night at the Legislature,” was held with NC legislators in Raleigh on Feb. 22. The event aimed to promote collaboration of nurses with members of the NC legislature. The lawmakers were urged by the nurses to focus on specific legislation: 1) modernizing advanced nursing practice (HB 88 and SB 73); and 2) allowing APNs and physician assistants to recertify handicap parking (HB 11). Representing the UNCW faculty were April Bice (pictured second from right), Kelly Ellington (pictured far right) and Diane Parker.
