Thank you University of Washington Continuing Nursing Education for the opportunity to share my ZOOM videotaped thoughts on all things nursing advocacy, activism, civic engagement and voting. And I meant what I said towards the end of my remarks: my nursing students give me great hope for our collective future. Most of them already understand the importance of this, are doing this work, and are keen to hone their advocacy, activism, and civic engagement skills. I’d also add here that we need to stand up against voter suppression and intimidation.
Stay strong and vote!
