Are you interested in learning about some of the legislative bills that the New Hampshire Legislature will be discussing during the 2018 legislative session? If so, don't miss NHNA's 2018 Legislative Town Hall Forum. NHNA's Commission on Government Affairs has been busy reviewing proposed legislation for New Hampshire's upcoming legislative session that will impact New Hampshire nurses and health care in the state. Such legislation includes: a bill to remove the certification requirement for school nurses, a bill requiring the reporting of serious workplace injuries in health care institutions to the Department of Labor, a bill creating an alternative recovery program for nurses with substance use disorder and many more.
If you want to learn more about these bills and other legislation, attend NHNA's Legislative Town Hall Forum on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 from 4:30-7:15 PM. The snow date is January 30, 2018.
