Each year, MCCN sends interested students to participate in Nurses Day at the Ohio Statehouse. Organized by the Ohio Nurses Association, the annual event brings together nursing advocates with state legislators to discuss policies and issues important to nurses. It’s a great opportunity to see how public policy intersects with nursing at the bedside.
