Introducing National Nurse Team Member Terri Polick
As a child growing up in Iowa, Terri Polick learned the importance of neighbors helping neighbors. That’s why she supports the establishment of the Office of the National Nurse. Terri grew up in a family of nurses. She remembers the stories her family members told her about their nursing practice and how they helped people in their community; the nervous new mother who worried about her baby’s diaper rash, the woman down the road suffering from “the grip,” and the elderly man dying at home, surrounded by his family. Their stories about caring for others inspires Terri today. Every American deserves a nurse. When the Office of National Nurse becomes a reality, nurses from around the country will be given the opportunity to do what we do best—help their neighbors lead happier and healthier lives.
