Abstract

Nurses are experienced leaders, understand how to improve quality and access to care, and have the essential skills to be an elected official. Knowing the key tasks to running a campaign is critical to achieving an elected office role. This article presents a call to action for nurse leaders, advice on running for office, and lessons learned from a nurse running for State Senate.
