The Voice of Nursing Education


public-policy-brochure-coverTo make a difference, you have to make your voice heard. The involvement of our members is vital to the NLN's goal of being the leader in setting standards, advancing quality and innovation, and advocating for all types of academic and lifelong learning programs in nursing. The NLN's objective in the public policy arena is to shape and influence those policies that affect nursing workforce development.

We encourage all NLN members to use the information provided here and on the Government Affairs Action Center to take an active role in molding the policy issues facing the nursing profession today. For further information on the NLN's government relations activities and positions, contact
