Hi All,

 Please see attached document on to to prepare your talk with legislator on Lobby Day.

We need your support! Please join us on the bus to our state capitol in Harrisburg on Lobby Day. To date we only have 16 people signed up for the bus. We were hoping for at least 50. Please encourage NP students to attend also, this is their future!

Planning to attend Lobby Day on May 12.  The cost for the bus is  just $15.00, and you will be picked up and dropped off at Montgomery Mall, Sears Auto Center.  Please contact Lois Chappell to reserve a spot on the bus at Lois.chappell@temple.edu<about:blank> or by phone at 215-534-2146.  Send your check made out to BuxMont PCNP to Lois at 123 North Lane, Chalfont, PA 18914.  Do this ASAP as we are filling seats quickly!!

Making a visit to your state legislator and senator.  Please review the Care of PA talking points on page 3 in the tool kit which is attached to help guide your discussion with legislators. Write a thank you to the legislator/senator after the visit stating your appreciation for their time and attention to the matter.  Make sure you identify yourself as a Nurse Practitioner and mention your own work environment and educational background during the visit.  Talk about what you do for your patients and how you do it.  Focus on the positive.

If unable to make a visit, write a letter mentioning the talking points and ask for support from your legislator/senator in support of the bills.

Consider making a donation to the PCNP if unable to attend lobby day @ https://pacnp.site-ym.com/donations<about:blank> <https://pacnp.site-ym.com/donations<about:blank>> .  Your funds will directly assist the advancement of nurse practitioners in PA.

Best wishes,
