One of the National Nurse Team's goals is to educate as many nurses and nursing students as possible about the National Nurse Act of 2006. Lillian Gonzalez will be presenting to a Nevada Chapter of the Student Nurses Association, and Teri and Alisa are heading to Mt. Wachusett Community College next week.
Please call your Representative, tell them you are a constituent supporting HR 4903 and you would like them to co-sponsor this important piece of legislation.
Tell your Representative that a National Nurse focused on mobilizing American nurses throughout the country to educate Americans about wellness makes sense. Here are just a few reasons:
1.The education of nurses focuses on disease prevention and health promotion.
2. With 2.9 million registered nurses in the U.S., nurses comprise the largest sector of healthcare workers in the nation.
3. Public polls rank nurses number one for trust and ethics.
4. As expert healthcare teachers, nurses have vast experience translating technical jargon.
5. Nurses understand the need to involve other healthcare disciplines to ensure positive outcomes for patients.
Remember, you can click on the picture of the capitol to learn who your Representative is along with their contact information. Make the calls today and let's work together to move the bill towards a Committee Hearing. Nursing is about teamwork and this is no different.
