The Florida Nurses Political Action Committee will be interviewing candidates for the 2020 Florida Election on Saturday, September 19 via Zoom. Individual nurses and other nursing organizations are welcome and invited to join us.

 

The Florida Nurses’ Political Action Committee (FN-PAC) exists to raise funds to support candidates that will work with us on issues related to nursing, patients and healthcare.  A PAC is a powerful tool in making nurses voice heard.  Before an election, the PAC gathers with our lobbyists to interview candidates regarding issues on our legislative agenda.   The Agenda is usually a multi-year plan which can be general in nature so that it includes issues that may arise during session so we can support or oppose them.

 

One thing that nurses MUST understand is that it takes VOTERS to influence legislation.  As nurses who vote, you can make a difference in your future as well as the care you deliver to your patients.  Participation in the association and donations to the PAC are a key element in this kind of advocacy.    You can become knowledgeable and have input into the agenda by being a member, by contacting your legislator and becoming a resource and a conduit from the association to the legislator. The FNA website has a page dedicated to political advocacy as a resource to members, students and other interested nurses.  You can access this at www.floridanurse.org/Advocacy.
