|Policy & Advocacy|
VNA plays an active role in advocating for policies that will support the nursing profession and create a healthier Virginia.
Amplifying Your Voice
Nursing's Public Policy Platform

Endorsement and Promotion Policy
VNA does not endorse or support specific candidates or legislators. As a member benefit, we provide our members with information on events in their local area. We encourage our members to meet their current legislators and candidates running for office in their local area to discuss issues that impact the nursing profession. We geotarget our candidate and legislator event notifications in the following ways: If a candidate or legislator is having an event in their district, we notify our members who reside in that district. If a candidate or legislator is having an event outside their district, we notify members who live in the chapter closest to the event. If you are a candidate or legislator with an upcoming event in Virginia you'd like to share, please contact Payton Drake.
