On Tuesday, Feb. 3, five doctoral nursing students from Associate Professor of Nursing Dr. Carrie Harvey’s Health Policy course participated in the Tennessee Action Coalition’s Legislative Boot Camp. Participating students included Robin Hopp, Tracy Wilson, James Winegart, Catherine Evans and Christine Hardesty.

The group of five joined 80 other nurses and students in learning how to successfully communicate with state legislators. Participants had interactive learning opportunities, toured capitol hill and received training on the Full Practice Authority bill being introduced to the Tennessee Legislature this year.
