|Day on the Hill|
MOLN holds an annual Day on the Hill event at the Minnesota Legislature. In 2018 the event was held on March 19. The purpose of the event is to provide participants with an opportunity to become actively involved in public policy related to nursing and health care.
Prior to the day, participants are encouraged to make appointments with their elected officials for the day of the event. MOLN is able to assist with making these appointments if needed. The Day on the Hill typically begins with a briefing on issues of interest. These issues are identified by the MOLN Policy and Advocacy Committee and includes legislation relation specifically related to nursing as well as health care legislation affecting nursing practice. Participants are given handouts and documents on these key issues to share with their legislators. In addition to meeting directly with legislators, participants are able to attend key hearings and take a tour of the Capitol building. The day ends with a report back from participants on the outcome of their meetings with legislators.
