ENA Day on the Hill

ENA Day on the Hill 2015

Day on the Hill registration is now closed as the event has reached capacity.

Please email meetings@ena.org to be added to the waitlist.

Day on the Hill is your chance to tell your elected officials your story about the critical, life-altering issues you face every day.

Don’t believe your voice makes a difference? Thirty-six days after our nurses advocated for mental health at Day on the Hill 2015, a comprehensive, bipartisan bill was introduced in the House. Your voices were heard. They helped give the bill life.

No experience in government advocacy? No problem. We provide training!

The two-day event features:

  • A training session with a congressional messaging expert on how to most effectively message ENA’s legislative requests
  • Specific information about ENA’s congressional requests so ENA members can speak knowledgeably about these issues
  • An opportunity to meet with congressional leaders on Capitol Hill to discuss how they can positively influence the future of emergency nursing
  • A Tuesday evening educational/networking event, an ENA public board meeting, and Town Hall
