Our trip to D.C. to lobby for the National Act of 2006 was fabulous. The team of nurses working on this were collaborative and professional as well as warm and collegial.
The staff on Capitol Hill were interested and attentive to the issues and solutions HR 4903 addresses.
I am more proud of nursing after this experience than I have ever been in my 34 years as a nurse. I hope that all nurses will review the proposed legislation and support this nurse driven agenda towards health promotion in the United States.
