December 11, 2020 | Nurses Out Front: The Future of Nurse-Driven Health Reform

Nurses possess unique health reform priorities forged by front-line experiences as well as patient and community engagement. However, they have not always been full partners in health care reform decision-making. This event explores nurses’ top health reform priorities, including addressing systemic inequities, and considers how they will continue to shape state and federal health policy.
