Thank you to those who came out on a windy, stormy evening in Santa Barbara to hear a presentation about the Office of the National Nurse and the activities surrounding the proposal and bill. The National Nurse team spoke with several nurses who had worked during the day, so it was especially appreciated that they came out to listen and also to ask great questions.
Also, special thanks to Nancy LaSota and Marcia Boudreaux-Shumaker who put in the time and made the arrangements for Alisa and Teri to travel to Santa Barbara. The National Nursing Network Organization welcomes these opportunities to educate others about the Office of the National Nurse, and you may write to firstname.lastname@example.org if your group is interested in having them come to a meeting or conference.

Oncology nurses are particularly concerned about our patients receiving the message of prevention. We also talked about the mountain of paperwork every nurse now faces, and the many necessary interventions our patients need that are no longer covered by Medicare.
