2024 Endorsements

The Missouri Nurses Association Political Action Committee (MONA-PAC) is the only political action committee representing the interests of all professional nurses in Missouri. It was established to elect candidates that will advance MONA’s legislative and regulatory agendas.

MONA-PAC was founded in 1985 and since that time has interviewed and endorsed hundreds of candidates for elected office in the Missouri legislative and executive branches.

Each election cycle, MONA-PAC endorses candidates who have demonstrated strong support for nursing and health care issues and will best serve the interests of nurses and their patients. The Missouri Nurses Association and our PAC believe all Missourians deserve easy access to affordable, quality health care. All nurses should be able to practice to the full extent of their education and training.

MONA-PAC works to ensure that nursing’s perspective is considered in policy decisions made in Jefferson City. Endorsement decisions are based on several criteria including, but not limited to, candidate survey, campaign information, and the candidate’s voting record on MONA’s priority issues.

MONA-PAC was pleased to formally endorse the following candidates during their 2022 campaigns.

MONA-PAC activities build on nonpartisan, criteria-based selection to:

  • Promote and financially endorse candidates who support MONA’s legislative agenda
  • Encourage grassroots involvement and nursing participation in the electoral process
  • Establish a dynamic, ongoing communication process between MONA-PAC, the MONA Board of Directors, regional officers and individual contributors

MONA-PAC differs from the MONA Advocacy Committee:

  • Advocacy Committee monitors legislation and regulation that impact nursing, developing a proactive agenda to support and direct nursing issues
  • MONA-PAC endorses candidates that support MONA and its legislative and regulatory agenda
