The purpose of the MICNP Political Action Committee is to provide an opportunity for persons interested in the welfare and future of nurse practitioners in Michigan to contribute to candidates for state office who support and/or have influence over issues of importance that are in line with the mission of MICNP. Although organizations such as MICNP are prohibited from contributing to state elections, they are allowed to establish PACs which may make contributions on behalf of candidates. Donations to MICNP PAC are held in an account separate from the MICNP state association, and the MICNP PAC Committee determines how to distribute these funds. MICNP PAC follows the rules established by the Michigan State Bureau of Elections.

Myths & Facts About MICNP PAC
Fact #1: MICNP PAC is completely bipartisan.
We will support Democrats or Republicans, as long as we have identified that they are supportive of issues important to nurse practitioners.
Fact #2: Most contributions are under $50.
Living on a budget? We simply ask that you only contribute what you can – but we do ask that you contribute! In 2016 we received donations from individuals that ranged from $10-$1000.
Fact #3: Legislative changes can impact your career as a nurse practitioner.
The Michigan House & Senate have significant control over healthcare funding, statutory guidelines that regulate our profession and more. State legislators pass laws that create regulations which impact what we do and how we do it. MICNP PAC gives us a voice with the legislators introducing those bills — bills that could become laws.
MICNP Endorsement Policy:
The organizational mission of the Michigan Council of Nurse Practitioners (MICNP) does not include the official endorsement of individuals who are candidates running for elected office, those who are currently serving in legislative office, or a specific political party. However, in order to support those who have indicated their willingness to help advance the nurse practitioner profession in the State of Michigan, funds raised by the MICNP Political Action Committee (PAC) may be used to make donations to key legislators or their respective caucuses. MICNP PAC may also choose to make targeted donations to legislators who have been identified as potential supporters of issues important to nurse practitioners.
