Today on Amplify Nursing, we talk to Congresswoman Donna Shalala and Health and Aging Policy Fellow, Dr. Alison Hernandez.

Representative Shalala has been a titan of health policy spanning over 30 years while most recently representing Florida’s 27th district in Congress. Working closely with Representative Shalala, Dr. Hernandez has led efforts to improve care and affordability for Medicare patients. In this interview, we talk about the profound impact nurses can have on policy, the importance of full scope of practice for practitioners, and why it’s important that nurses have a voice at the table.
