I am proud to co-sponsor H.R. 4903 to establish the Office of the National Nurse. This legislation will help address important challenges to America’s public health system.
Nurses are a vital but often underappreciated part of our health care team. We must do more to recognize their dedication, skill, and compassion. Recruiting the best young people our country has to offer and enhancing nurse education will help boost the profession and improve public health in communities throughout the country.
I believe that nursing is a noble calling. Through my years of public service, I have heard hundreds of stories of the amazing work done by America’s nurses. It is our duty to create a future in which this legacy can continue.
