INPAC: Advancing Nursing and Healthcare
The Interested Nurses Political Action Committee (INPAC) is a nonpartisan political action committee of the New Jersey State Nurses Association (NJSNA). NJSNA is committed to promoting and advancing excellence in nursing and health care in New Jersey. The INPAC Board of Trustees is made up of nurses from all regions of the state in all fields of nursing.
INPAC, the political arm of NJSNA, is not a lobbying organization. Instead, it aims to influence healthcare policy discourse by endorsing and contributing to candidates who support the nursing profession and quality healthcare. Elected officials directly affect nursing practice and the healthcare system. Nurses must stand together and support candidates who advocate for nurses and quality healthcare. Politics have a great impact on nursing. Therefore, nursing should have a meaningful impact on politics.
