MNA members decide which candidates to endorse. Members are involved every step of the way:
- Candidates fill out questionnaires developed by members about their positions on MNA issues;
- Members meet with and screen candidates;
- Members recommend candidates to the MNA Board of Directors;
- The MNA Board has the final say on the endorsements, which are posted on MNA’s website during election season.
We realize and respect everyone’s right to vote for whomever they’d like, and we encourage members to publicly debate which politicians and policies they favor in places such as this Blog or our MNA Facebook page.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on politics and nursing issues along with what you think MNA can do to engage more nurses in political and policy advocacy – and get involved yourself!
