New! From Frontlines to Voting Lines: Nurses Need to Vote in 2020

To make a difference, you have to make your voice heard. The involvement of our members is vital to the NLN's goal of being the leader in setting standards, advancing quality and innovation, and advocating for all types of academic and lifelong learning programs in nursing. The NLN's objective in the public policy arena is to shape and influence those policies that affect nursing workforce development.  We encourage all NLN members to use the information provided here and on the Advocacy Action Center to take an active role in molding the policy issues facing the nursing profession today. For further information on the NLN's government relations activities and positions, contact publicpolicy@nln.org.

Keeping the nation’s health demands and the economic environment in mind, in 2019 and 2020, the NLN will focus on the following priorities:
