Nurses’ Voices Matter: Become a Climate for Health Ambassador!

Nurses can help make a meaningful difference on how Americans relate to and act on climate. Public concern about climate change is increasing, and solutions are at hand. Nurses are trusted messengers that can help their community, peers, and policymakers turn their climate concern into action. This free, four-hour Nursing CE qualified training equips nurses with the knowledge, hands-on experience, and resources to speak and act confidently on climate change, the impacts on health, and solutions. With this training, nurses will learn how to inspire their colleagues, associations, community, the public, and policymakers to bring forth climate solutions that help protect the health of our families and communities now, and ensure a prosperous, just, and secure future. The training is interactive and can be done on your own time and at your own pace.
