The National Nurse Team received this report from Leesburg, Virgina. On Thursday, June 29, 2006, the George Mason University Master of Science in Nursing class, Organization of Nursing and Health Care Delivery Systems, gave mock Congressional testimony regarding the nursing shortage with actions to remedy it. One group representing patients, spoke in strong support of The National Nurse Act of 2006 and encouraged all in attendance to contact their representatives and spread the word to their colleagues. In attendance were senior leaders of the Inova Health System, Karen Drenkard, David Goldberg and Patrick Walters. This healthcare system is located in Northern Virginia. Members of the class were surprised that they had not heard of HR 4903 and vowed to promote it using handouts provided by the National Nurse Team and this web page. The class is taught by Brenda Sheingold, RN, MSOD who uses many innovative teaching techniques when instructing her students.
