Opportunities to Stay Involved

The NC General Assembly is currently out of session, but NCNA will ramp up its advocacy efforts in January 2023 when the General Assembly kicks off its long session. Our efforts will focus on full practice authority for APRNs, Medicaid expansion, school nurse funding and other important policy issues. The SAVE Act has years worth of momentum, with strong support from influential groups outside of nursing such as AARP, Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC, Americans for Prosperity, March of Dimes and many more.

Whether you’re volunteering to talk to legislators every week or just cheering us on from afar, NCNA will have a wide variety of ways you can help lead Nursing Forward in 2023 and beyond.

Grassroots Network
The North Carolina Nurses Association is excited to provide Registered Nurses and supporters of nursing with capabilities to effectively advocate for policy changes that positively impact the nursing profession and lead to better care for patients. Stand up and become part of this effort by letting policymakers know you support moving Nursing Forward®.
Go here to sign up now.

Tuesday Volunteers
NCNA is once again planning to lead grassroots volunteer opportunities every Tuesday morning while the legislature is in session. We anticipate another year of fun and effective experience advocating for full practice authority for APRNs and other nurse-friendly legislation. Our primary focus will be the 2023 version of the SAVE Act, and we anticipate most shifts to last roughly two hours. Keep an eye out for a sign-up form when session begins!

NC Nurses PAC
The NC Nurses PAC is the vehicle for NCNA members to promote candidates, including Registered Nurses, seeking elected office in North Carolina with strong records of supporting nurses and their efforts to provide quality healthcare for patients. We raised more than $60,000 in 2021 and are on pace to exceed that in 2022!
