Advocacy Trainings for Nurses – 2024 Webinar Series

February 20, 2024

OADN is excited to announce three new advocacy training webinars.

Each of these three webinars are open to all OADN members free of charge.

NOA has recognized the importance of advocacy and the role nursing associations and their individual members in leading change at the local, state, and national levels. We understand that our member organizations and individual members are key players in this effort. However, we have also identified common obstacles that can hinder our progress toward achieving our goals. At NOA, we are committed to working with our members to overcome these obstacles and continue advocating for the nursing community.
