Donate to the AONP PAC

AONP PAC is the non-partisan Political Action Committee (PAC) that supports, protects and promotes nurse practitioners throughout the Oklahoma legislative process. Your voluntary, personal contributions to AONP's PAC have had tremendous impact on several key issues affecting nurse practitioners, such as our work for independent practice rights, by raising awareness and educating legislators on the importance of nurse practitioners and their role in the future of healthcare.

 


Legislative Advocacy

The Second Regular Session of the 57th Oklahoma Legislature will convene on Monday, February 3, 2020.

When the Oklahoma Legislature is in session, the AONP legislative team, led by Executive Director, Benny Vanatta, monitors events at the Capitol every day; meeting with legislators and scrutinizing legislation. We fight legislation that would harm NP practice and create and promote bills that advance NP practice in Oklahoma.

During the interim, from June through January, we maintain our vigil by working with legislators and staff on interim studies. Due to the short legislative session, interim studies are necessary, in-depth research of important issues that are conducted by committees to aid the legislators in the upcoming session that begins in February.

2020 Legislative Nurse of the Day

The Nurse of the Day program, sponsored by the Oklahoma Nurses Association (ONA), gives Nurse Practitioners an opportunity to bring advanced practice nursing to the policy makers, and provides an opportunity for NPs to learn more about the legislative process.

During the legislative session, many professional associations are trying to get legislators to take notice of their views. The Nurse of the Day program provides visibility and an opportunity for NP voices to be heard.
