The PCNP PAC is our Political Action Committee. This is a separate
committee which exists to receive contributions from those supporting
nurse practitioners and disburse those contributions to politicians,
specifically to members of the PA General Assembly. We are not a federal
PAC, so we can only give on the state level. By law we can only accept
personal donations. Corporate contributions are prohibited. This money
is kept in a separate account and reports must be filed several times a
year with the state.
There is an old political adage that "In
politics, if you don't give to your friends, you won't have any."
Individual Senators and Representatives, as well as the Democratic and
Republican caucuses and leadership, raise money for elections. Our
lobbyist receives many invitations from legislators and staff asking her
to attend their events, which are often $500 to $1000 a ticket. We need
your financial support to help get our lobbyist in the room to put
forth the nurse practitioner's agenda, promote the role of nurse
practitioners and the contribution we provide improving access to health
care in Pennsylvania!
