Mona and MONSA would like to personally thank each and everyone of the individuals that were able to travel down to Jefferson City this past Nurse Advocacy Day. It was truly an important and impactful day to remember.
With over 800 nursing students attending we were able to speak our voice, talk to our representatives, and work towards making a difference for all patients and citizens of the great state of Missouri.
Make sure to share your experiences in our new tab 'Get Social' by attaching a picture and a brief synopsis of your day, and how you think you made a difference in your community. We would also like to know how this event may have helped you build your profession and leadership skills.
