Day on the Hill
Washington, D.C.
April 16-17

ENA will head to the nation’s capital for Day on the Hill on April 16-17.

Day on the Hill is ENA’s two-day premier advocacy program where members can:

  • Learn more about ENA’s current federal legislative priorities.
  • Train on effective strategies for meeting with members of Congress.
  • Network with fellow advocates and nurse leaders.
  • Advocate on Capitol Hill for policies to support the lifesaving contributions of emergency nurses.

ENA looks forward to encouraging new voices for positive change and celebrating emergency nurses on Capitol Hill. Now is the time to request your congressional meetings with members of Congress in the House and Senate. Coordinate with your state government affairs chair or other attendees from your state to ensure only one request goes to each office.

ENA looks forward to you joining your peers as a voice for positive change and to celebrate emergency nurses on Capitol Hill!

Space is limited, so contact your state council president today to request a spot.
