Legislative Update

The ND Center for Nursing actively monitors legislation that impacts the nursing workforce and the healthcare system as determined through priorities by our ND Center for Nursing Leadership Team and organizational members.  We are taking a break during the summer, but will start having Interim Legislative Update Calls this fall. Typically the calls are every other month as we track interim studies and the possibility of new legislation for the next session.
