Washington DC Less Than Two Weeks Away

The National Nurse Team is preparing to take Washington DC by storm.

National Nurse Teri from Oregon will be joined by National Nurse Pat from Connecticut and National Nurse Terri from Maryland. We will be accompanied by a member of the American Association of Community Colleges as well.

Slowly but surely, we are drawing in members of Congress and warming them up to the idea that we need an Office of the National Nurse to help promote health and lessen disease and suffering in America.

You can lend us your support by signing our petition-petitiononline.com/rnusa1/petition.html

I admire your efforts. Please consider the fact that nurses also need better working conditions. I don't know if unions are the entire answer, but we need to have a smaller nurse/patient ratio, responsive management, flexible schedules, and a more family friendly work place. In some parts of this country nurses are treated horribly (I have worked from NE to GA to TX). Many of the nurses I know that are my age (early 50's) left nursing because of the horrible working conditions. To quote my last head nurse: you don't need to eat, drink or go to the bathroom."
And yes, we need national healthcare. My state, Tx, has 40+% uninsured...that clogs our ERs, and certainly impacts families all over the state.
