Creating Sustainable Change in Nursing

The Advocacy Institute Fellowship is an immersive program designed to help nurses develop the skills and knowledge necessary to lead advocacy initiatives affecting legislation, regulations, and policies in California.


During their one-year commitment, Fellows will leverage ANA\California's network of coalitions, partners, media, and political contacts to engage new opportunities for creating sustainable change in nursing.
