HPNA Seeks State Ambassadors

Home » News » HPNA Seeks State Ambassadors

HPNA State Ambassadors are members with experience in hospice and palliative nursing who have the desire to learn about the policy-making process at the local, state, and federal levels. These individuals serve as a general resource for HPNA members regarding legislative and regulatory issues at the state level and provide information about state/regional policy issues on a quarterly basis. HPNA State Ambassadors also disseminate information about national policy issues as directed by HPNA and encourage HPNA nurses at the state and local levels to participate in HPNA public policy activities.
