Thank you to registered nurse, Barbara Ficarra, who chose to publish A National Nurse to Deliver the Message of Prevention, written by Lillian Gonzalez BSN, RN. Ficarra's website, Health in 30 is dedicated to the responsible sharing of information in the healthcare industry and is an extension of her New York City radio program. Health in 30 airs live every Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST, on WRCR AM 1300 Radio Rockland.

Gonzalez's article highlights the fact that Americans are bombarded with inaccurate and inconsistent health information. She uses her own personal stories to demonstrate this, talking about experiencing symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Although she is a nurse, she found that she had to work to decipher complex information to learn how to prevent and stop her symptoms. What about the majority of Americans who have no medical or health background? Who can they turn to when they are suffering and finding it harder every day to live healthy lives?

Gonzalez urges her readers to find out why thousands of nurses are now supporting the campaign to create an Office of the National Nurse. Nurses are best positioned to deliver the message of prevention, and it is time for our entire country to join together and profit individually and collectively in living healthier lives through the teachings from a National Nurse and teams of volunteer nurses in every community.

Barbara Ficarra asks for opinions about the National Nurse proposal. Please take a look at this A National Nurse to Deliver the Message of Prevention and you will find a link at the end of the story to send her your thoughts.
