MOLN worked together with the University of Minnesota Densford Center, MNORN and the University of Minnesota School of Nursing to convene state nursing organizations in a public policy forum. The goals of the forum were to:
• Leverage the power of nurses across all areas of nursing (Home Health, LTC, Acute Care, APRN etc) to support public policies which improve the health of Minnesotans.
• Build the capacity of the nursing community for grassroots organizing to support the goal of improving the health of Minnesotans. (communication, activating membership)
• At the end of the meeting we hope to have agreement from the group to meet twice a year going forward (pre and post legislative session)
