2015 NURSES DAY at THE STATEHOUSE


Jennifer L. Guy, BS, RN, OCN®

Because CCONS continues as a co-sponsor of Nurses Day at the Statehouse (NDASH), you can attend for a reduced registration fee! Just identify CCONS when you register at

http://ohiondash.com/.

On February 18th,  join nurses from across the state to see your Ohio Legislature at work in committee hearings, meet Ohio legislators and educate them on healthcare related issues, learn the history of the Ohio statehouse and tour the beautifully restored building, and learn how to effectively advocate for our patients and profession.

The day begins with an address by an Ohio legislator(s), followed by sponsoring organizations sharing their legislative priorities, both state and national. At lunch, meet

legislators and get to know them as well as share your views on issues before the chambers. There is also an opportunity to meet with your state Representatives and Senators.

Tracy Ruegg graciously continues to serve as the CCONS representative on the planning committee and presents oncology issues to the attendees. Thank you, Tracy!

The capacity for this event is limited by the necessary venue and it fills up fast. At press time, registrations were still available. So register soon at: http://ohiondash.com/.
