Nursing attends Advocacy Day
April 23, 2013
The MacMurray College Nursing Department took all the senior nursing students and several faculty members to Springfield, IL, on Tuesday April 16, 2013 to participate in an Advocacy Day.
For the 15th Annual INA (Illinois Nurses Association) Student Nurse Political Action Day, more than 1,000 nursing students gathered in Springfield. Students participated in the action day to learn about the legislative process and how it affects nursing practice.
Mac students participated in various political activities throughout the day, including talking with legislators, a poster presentation, and a march to the state’s capitol. Nursing students also spent the day networking and learning more about the field of nursing.
