Yale School of Nursing Candidate School for Nurses & Midwives

Have you thought about running for elected office?  

Do you have a nurse and/or midwive friend/colleague that has?

At Yale School of Nursing, we seek to:

  • Inspire nurses and midwives to run for office, particularly down ballot races
  • Provide training and support to help nurses and midwives who run win
  • Promote a culture within nursing and midwifery where we support our colleagues who enter politics
  • Add to what we know about nurses and midwives in elected office

The Yale Campaign School for Nurses will be: 

  • Non-partisan
  • Targeted specifically to nurses and midwives
  • Practical – with advice and information you can use
  • Interactive
  • Focused on state and local races

The agenda will include:

  • Developing a campaign plan
  • Building a campaign team
  • Understanding party politics
  • Creating your narrative
  • Navigating campaign finance and fundraising
  • Interacting with the Media
  • Building a grass-roots network through field organizing
  • Utilizing digital/online organizing

The faculty will include campaign experts and nurses who have run for office.

The school will be limited to 50 participants to allow for interactive Q & A with experts.

The program will begin Wednesday evening with an opening reception. Thursday and Friday will be long days – just like a campaign! We will conclude Saturday at 5pm. 

Tuition:  $595.  Limited scholarships will be available.
