#NursePlatform Legislative Sign On for Elected Officials
Now is the time to stand with nurses to demand that nurses have a say in the decisions being made about our patients and profession in Pennsylvania’s recovery plan. We need decision-makers to work with us to implement our #NursePlatform: The Nurse Plan for Pennsylvania’s Recovery.
It’s time to put patient and public health advocacy above partisan politics. Pennsylvania’s legislators cannot continue to plan a pandemic recovery without nurses.
If you are committed to work with nurses to implement our #NursePlatform, use this form to sign-on and we ask you to cosponsor accompanying legislation.
If you are a nurse who wants your legislator to support the platform, please do *not* fill out this form, as this is only for legislators make a commitment to support.
Once you complete those two steps we will list you as a supporter on the pages of the nurse organizations advocating for this platform (Nurses of PA and Nurse Alliance of SEIU PA), and let nurses know you are standing with them.
