Event Description

In-person meetings are the most valuable tool advocates have, and Day on the Hill is your chance to communicate directly with Members of Congress and their staff. You’ll talk directly to elected officials about the critical, life-altering issues you face each day. No experience is necessary to be an advocate for emergency nursing—thorough preparation and training is provided.

Day on the Hill will provide:

  • Interactive training sessions on how to effectively engage lawmakers on behalf of ENA
  • Opportunities to meet with congressional leaders on Capitol Hill to discuss how they can positively influence the future of emergency nursing
  • Networking sessions and an update from the ENA Board of Directors

Email gov@ena.org with any additional questions.


Registration is now open

Contact your State Council President to let them know you are interested in attending.

We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C.!
