From A Concerned Citizen

I am a concerned citizen that strongly supports the establishment of the Office of National Nurse and HR 4903. Recently our family has experienced, first-hand, the effects of the national nursing shortage as we faced serious health issues for both my mother and my husband's father. It is essential that we, as a country, increase the visibility of nurses and teach their value to our society. This is how we will attract new people to this vital profession. HR 4903 does this by placing a qualified nurse in a position of national prominence. The National Nurse will promote health-care prevention -- an area neglected in our current health care infrastructure. And, importantly, nurses from across the country will form a built-in network -- available for national emergencies and ongoing health information dissemination and instruction. Please support this important legislation.
