Our family supports the creation of the Office of the National Nurse, to deliver the message of prevention to all Americans. We have three sons, ages 7, 4 and 3 months. All of them would benefit greatly in the future from the educational resources presented through such an office.
Each of our sons was delivered by an excellent physician, but it was the delivery nurse each time that impressed us the most. Thousands of women in this country benefit each day from the care given by their nurses during delivery, which makes the process of birth safer and more physically reasonable. The Office of the National Nurse will provide programs to address high-burnout in the nursing profession and also promote the status of these dedicated nurses everywhere.
