RN Lobby Days coming to Sacramento State

RN Lobby Days, an annual statewide event for California nursing students, faculty and RNs, will kick off in the Sacramento State Ballroom, Sunday, April 20, from 9 am to 5 pm. Participants will learn about new bills affecting nursing education, nursing practice and health care and then visit the State Capitol on April 21 for tours and meetings with Legislators (1201 K Street, 15th Floor).

The conference will open with remarks from University President Alexander Gonzalez, College of Health and Human Services Dean Marilyn Hopkins, and Nursing Division Chair Ann Stoltz. Guest speakers include legislators, members of the Board of Registered Nursing and nurses running for political offices.

“This will be an excellent opportunity for Sacramento State to demonstrate its support for nursing practice and help educate the nursing community about the legislative process and political advocacy,” says Dean Marilyn Hopkins.

During the April 20 program, Senator Jack Scott and Assemblyman Thomas Berryhill will be honored for their work in authoring legislation for nursing education during the past year.

On April 21, conference attendees will take a tour of the Capitol building, visit local legislators and enter the Assembly Chambers to view how bills are introduced, discussed and voted on.

“RN Lobby Days is a wonderful event for nursing students, faculty and RNs to get hands-on experience as a political advocate for the nursing profession and health care delivery in California,” says Sacramento State Nursing Professor and American Nurses Association/California President Louise Timmer. The event is sponsored by the American Nurses Association/ California and the Campus Nursing Students Association (CNSA).
