School for Nurses Seeking Elected Office Opens Applications

Nurses often talk about the importance of nurses being at the table in an elected office where policies are made, and here’s a chance for 50 nurses to get the skills they need for a seat at the table.

Healing Politics invites nurses and midwives interested in seeking elected office to apply to attend its inaugural Campaign School for Nurses and Midwives on May 24-27, 2023, at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy in Durham, N.C.

Healing Politics will provide intensive and practical training to 50 nurses and midwives to run for elected office.

In addition, nurse legislators and campaign operatives with experience in fields ranging from fundraising to digital strategy will provide instruction. 

The organization believes more nurses – as superb communicators, empathetic listeners, and persistent builders – should run for political office to attain better health for all.

The program will begin on Wednesday evening, May 24, with a welcome/networking reception and run Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. All meals are included as the program runs from morning until evening.

The Campaign School will be hosted by Polis: Center for Politics at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy in Durham, NC.  Durham is well-served by Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), with 350+ daily flights.  Hotel recommendations will be added soon.
