Nurse Practitioners of Idaho announces Idaho Legislative Day to be held in January 2020

Posted 27 days ago

The Nurse Practitioners of Idaho (NPI) are pleased to announce our annual Legislative Day will be held Friday, January 24, 2020, at the Capitol Building in Boise, Idaho.  

This is a one-day educational advocacy event designed to gather Idaho nurse practitioners in Boise, Idaho to raise awareness among state legislators about the importance of nurse practitioners and their ties to the delivery of safe, effective, and timely patient care to communities across Idaho.  This is an opportunity for nurse practitioners to directly influence state policymakers and be a part of positive change for patients in our home state of Idaho.  

It is important to contact your district representatives who you would like to meet that day.  NP attendees will receive guidance during Legislative Day on how best to approach those meetings.  NPI will have pertinent talking points provided in a packet to help you explain important legislative points to the representatives you will be meeting.  This is a perfect opportunity for both seasoned and novice advocates. 

If you need to verify your representatives, visit the "Who is My Legislator" link at https://legislature.idaho.gov/legislators/whosmylegislator/ which will direct you to the email addresses for your district’s State Representatives and Senators.  From there you can obtain each representative's contact information, including email.  Please use this information to contact them and request a meeting during Legislative Day.  

This is a free event taking place on Friday, January 24, 2020, from 8-11 am.
