ONS Capitol Hill Days

Hill Days 18

This 2018 ONS Capitol Hill Days was held in September 4–6 in Washington, DC. More than 100 nurses from 32 states stormed the Capitol to meet with 141 congressional offices. We made a huge impact on the legislative environment and can report that after our sessions with the offices, US Representatives and Senators signed onto many of the bills for which we advocated.  

What's Next?

Here's how to keep the momentum going!
