This program explores advocacy by nurses. Nurses don't wear white caps anymore, but advocacy is one hat that nurses will always wear as we support our patients, families, communities, and our legislative bodies. 

Nurses must speak up for patients in all venues; they must promote safe practices in their facilities; they must be part of health care policy; and they must advocate for the profession and each other.
