Additional Information

Please make plans to join other APRN's from all over Missouri for the second AMNP Lobby Day as we visit legislators in a grassroots effort to improve access and quality of healthcare in Missouri.

Attendees will hear from AMNP's lobbyists about the various APRN bills that are moving and will also learn about how to conduct the most effective visits with legislators. After a question and answer session, attendees will engage with their local senators, representatives, and staff members in our efforts to remove the unnecessary barriers and regulation to APRN practice. 

Following the visits, attendees will reconvene to discuss the visits and any follow up needed for specific elected officials. 

This is YOUR opportunity to make YOUR voice heard. Constituent engagement on issues is absolutely critical to influencing votes. YOUR legislators need to hear from YOU! Plan to join us to advocate for your patients and your profession.
