political career

  1. Is it possible to obtain a career in politics as a nurse? More like being involved in health care and human rights on an international level?

    There is a wide world of nursing beyond 4 hospital walls. Get involved in patient advocacy /government relations is starting point.

    International level:
    International Council of Nurses
    World Health Organization: WHO

    Policy & Advocacy - American Nurses Association

    ANA has many resources to develop political leadership skills including American Nurses Advocacy Institute annual program designed to help nurses gain political competence.
