We Stand With Arizona Nurses

Posted over 3 years ago by Katie Wall

Now, will you stand with us?

In 2016, Arizona lawmakers will consider the most critical legislation in a generation affecting nurses in this state.

This bill will increase the Scope of Practice for 6,500 Advanced Practice Nurses across Arizona. That means greater autonomy to do what you do best every day – care for your patients.

The Arizona Nurses Association is leading a coalition of nursing groups supporting this legislation. We're calling it the Nurses Care 4 Arizona Campaign. But we know our effort won't come easily.
Already, physician groups and other opponents are out in force with misleading statements and arguments that diminish the work and qualifications of Arizona nurses.

We won't let their attacks go unanswered. We won't back down. Our campaign requires a multi-pronged approach – working one-on-one with legislators, and telling the story of Arizona nurses in the media and with the public.
It is necessary, but it doesn't come cheap.

That's where you come in. Will you make a donation to the Arizona Nurses Association to help support the Nurses Care 4 Arizona campaign?

Your donation will provide the critical resources we need to make sure Advanced Practice legislation is approved in Arizona in 2016.
