Day on the Hill is your chance to tell your elective 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:

  • An interactive 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
  • Networking sessions, an ENA public board meeting, and Town Hall

This event was extremely popular last year – 117 members attended and 90% said they’ll be back – so save the date and watch for registration updates. 

Download the March 16, 2015 webinar “How to Hug a Porcupine: Relationship Building with Lawmakers and Why It’s Important.” Participants will learn: who do Congress and state legislators listen to; what congressional staffers believe are the most effective communications tactics for influencing undecided Members of Congress; and how to conduct effective in-person meetings, influence legislators at town hall meetings, as well as effective advocacy in the state/district.
