As many of you know, The National Nurse Act of 2006 was introduced into the House of Representatives by the Honorable Lois Capps on March 8, 2006. Congresswoman Capps is also a registered nurse and she co-chairs the House Nursing Caucus.
While on vacation, Teri decided to stop by the offices of Congresswoman Capps located in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara to meet and greet her extraordinarily supportive and knowledgeable staff.
The National Nurse Act of 2006 is red, hot, and rolling and has seen remarkable progress in California. This past month the California School Nurses Organization endorsed the bill. Four US Representatives from the state have signed on to HR 4903 over the course of four weeks. Students from all corners of the state continue to inquire about the bill and to integrate it into their school projects and presentations.
