Good News: we're sending Healthcare Heroes to Sacramento!

November 5, 2020

You work hard to provide the best possible care for your patients. But sometimes…

It takes a LAW. (Click »»» here to see some of the strong Nursing and healthcare laws we've won.)

That's why we're excited to announce that, as a result of yesterday's elections, we're again sending Healthcare Heroes—endorsed by our Nurse-Powered Politics (COPE) Committee—to represent us in Sacramento. You'll recognize some names here, many who helped us win things like our Stop Repeat Offender Hospitals bill and our recent PPE and Worker's Comp bills.

Here are the election results* for the Healthcare Heroes we endorsed—we will work with them to continue passing strong Nurse and healthcare legislation:
