2022 "Nurse's Day at the Capitol" Field Trip

Giving Day information about Nurse’s Day at the Capitol

Cap fund pic

Cause: Help nursing students learn how to use their voice to advocate for patient care and the health of our communities. We are fundraising to pay for a trip to Sacramento for the American Nurse's Association's California Day at the Capitol for 80 students. Being on the floor at the capitol provides nursing students with real-world insight into the legislative process and the need for nurses to have a voice when decisions are being made about health care.
