The National Nurse Team wishes to express our gratitude to Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR)
who became the first co-sponsor of HR 4903-The National Nurse Act of 2006
Representative Blumenauer introduced "America's Nurse", the op/ed that detailed the proposal for an Office of the National Nurse into Congressional Record on May 26, 2005 and has been instrumental in assisting the National Nurse Team.
Representative Blumenauer commends the National Nurse Team for their diligence in lobbying on the issue and says "The team is an inspiration and proof that citizens really can make a difference. Their dedication leaves me with no doubt that their idea (for an Office of the National Nurse) will eventually come to fruition and I applaud their efforts."
