    On April 24, nurses and associates across Advocate Health Care went to Springfield for the 13th annual Nurse Advocacy Day at the State Capitol. In total, over 80 Advocate nurses met with dozens of state legislators including Senate President John Cullerton and House Republican Leader Jim Durkin to discuss important health care issues.

    Eight nurses from Advocate Lutheran General Hospital attended the advocacy day this year. They met with senators and state representatives on critical health care initiatives that impact their profession like the state Medicaid budget, the nurse licensure compact, which would allow nurses licensed under a reciprocal compact state to also be licensed by any state within the compact, and supporting raising the legal age for buying cigarettes and tobacco products to 21.
