2023 APRN Lobby Day

The purpose of the Wisconsin APRN Lobby Day is to support and prepare APRNs and APRN students for meetings with their Assembly and State legislator. Meetings will take place in legislator offices at the State Capitol. There are three goals for meeting with legislators:

  1. Educate and inform legislators on the personal role and value as an APRN.
  2. Describe the intent and the key areas of the APRN Modernization Act and the benefits of supporting increased patient access and safety.
  3. Find out if the legislator will support the legislation.

WNA staff will arrange for and notify registrants of the appointment time(s) with their legislator(s) closer to the meeting date.
