You Have The Power!

The National Nursing Network Organization received word this week that it is now an official a 501(c)4 non-profit legislative advocacy organization. As you are probably aware, many organizations and campaigns hire a lobbyist who is paid to go to Congress and advocate on their behalf. This is not the case with the National Nurse Campaign. We believe this campaign is for those of us who live on Main Street, not K Street.

Members of the National Nurse Team value the power each of us as individuals has to participate and make a difference in improving the health of our country. All three of our elected nurses in Congress began with nursing careers, and all three have made a huge difference in helping to improve the lives of nurses and ordinary Americans. It is our goal to do the same.

So when advertisers approach us, and ask if they can advertise on and pay us, we continue to refuse their offers regardless of what they are selling.

This campaign depends on you-and today we ask you, our supporters, to please make an on line donation by clicking the donate now button, or email to learn where to mail a check.

We are asking for $20. For those who contribute $20, the team will place a certificate in your honor inside a packet that will be delivered to your US Representative during our March trip to Washington DC. A copy will also be mailed to you. Please know that it costs $20 to make up a professional packet of supporting materials about the Office of the National Nurse, so your donation is actually paying for this packet.

Supporters living in California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Vermont, and Virginia have already made donations. Please join them and add your voice to the Campaign for the National Nurse. You have the power to make the Office of the National Nurse become a reality.

Dear Anonymous,

There are other ways you can make a difference besides making a monetary contribution.

Sign the on line petition.

Submit your email in the box on the right side of this webpage to receive the weekly updates.

Write to and request a poster to hang at your school. These are free and can be downloaded and printed on your own computer.

AND most importantly, once the bill to create an Office of the National Nurse has been reintroduced, you can write or call your own US Representative, using the sample phone script and letter provided at

Thanks so much for your support and the best of luck to you while in college.
