Now more than ever our communities, and community leaders, must be made aware of all that nurses bring to the table and the key role they play in keeping Oklahoman’s healthy. Nurses have been voted one of the most trusted professions for nearly 20 years in a row, which provides you with power! It is time to harness that power. Legislators understand that nurses have kept us safe, educated and kept going when no one else would, but they are not serving on the front lines of healthcare like you. They can only know what conditions are truly like when you share your nursing story. At the 2023, Nurses Day at the Capitol, Oklahoma nurses and nursing students will come together to discuss, share, and learn about where we’ve been and what the future holds. Nurses Day at the Capitol will empower and educate nurses on the power of the nursing voice. Nurses in all stages of their careers should attend. Please join us for this special event, Tuesday, March 7, 2023.

Here's your opportunity to meet your legislative representatives with your fellow nurses at ONA's 2023 Nurses Day at the Capitol. This event will take place on at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, OK. During this event, Vickie White-Rankin, ONA Lobbyist, will share valuable insights to the legislative process and how you can impact it based on what you support. In addition, you will have exclusive access to visit legislators and hear discussions of bills in the House and Senate Chambers.
