Trinity Nursing students and faculty, including Dr. Nikolaos Moraros in the back of the photo, above, took Capitol Hill by storm for the National Black Nurses Association Capitol Hill Day. This was an opportunity for Trinity nurses to meet other nursing students and nurses from across the country and to network with Hill staff and legislators on healthcare issues. Dr. Denise Pope, Trinity’s Chief Nursing Officer, says that this day is important because, “These kind of activities provide an opportunity for students to see policy in action and how powerful the profession of nursing can be in moving an agenda item forward. A large part of the discussion today was on the impact of repealing Obama Care and the havoc it would cause for the insurance industry, economics and health care system.”
We are proud of our Trinity Nurses for showing so much engagement with important issues in healthcare policy!
