Nurse Advocacy Day
In April 2017, members of Advocate Health Care’s Nurse Advocacy Council (NAC) hosted their 12th Annual Nurse Advocacy Day at the State Capitol in Springfield. A total of 100 direct care nurses from across the Advocate system met with more than 60 state legislators to discuss several nurse initiatives that are working through the house & senate. A few include Senate President John Cullerton, House Republican Leader Jim Durkin, Governor Bruce Rauner and Lt. Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti.
