PSNA is pleased to unveil its Legislative Ambassador Program. Your professional association is looking for ambitious members – just like yourself – to represent nursing’s voice to Pennsylvania’s legislature. Legislative Ambassadors play a crucial role in advancing the association’s legislative agenda. This two-year program offers Ambassadors the opportunity to participate in a broad range of advocacy initiatives while building relationships with elected officials. PSNA seeks to identify at least two PSNA members in each House and Senate district. (Not a member? Join today and get involved.)

  • Participate in Ambassador conference calls (as needed)
  • Be a registered voter
  • Send letters of introduction to elected officials
  • Attend face-to-face meetings with elected officials
  • Communicate with legislators via phone, letter, and email
  • Submit Letters to the Editor and Op-Eds (as needed)
  • Set aside personal political agendas when representing PSNA
  • Maintain robust connection to PSNA
  • Inform PSNA of your Legislative Ambassador activities
  • Respond to and share PSNA Action Alert emails
  • Educate RNs on PSNA’s legislative priorities

 

Ambassadors Also Receive:

  • Advocacy and healthcare updates on a “first-to-know” basis
  • PSNA’s Advocacy Academy (4-hour face-to-face education, includes CNE)
  • Ambassador webinars
  • Legislative agenda, talking points, policy briefs, and position papers
