NE Tennessee Nurse Practitioner Association Endorses National Nurse


Thank you Kathy Sharp and the NE Tennessee Nurse Practitioner Association for this letter of support and for your offer of assistance!

February 7, 2007

Dear Teri,

On behalf of the Northeast Tennessee Nurse Practitioner Association, I want to send you our collective vote of support for the Office of the National
Nurse. At the start of the National Nurse campaign, our membership of
100 nurse practitioners recognized that our values and commitment to provide
excellent healthcare, paralleled those of this important new office.

As you know we are in the midst of a healthcare crisis. Heart Disease,
Obesity, and Diabetes pose a great threat to the nation’s health and
longevity. America desperately needs to be educated and assisted to adopt
healthy lifestyles so that many of these diseases could be prevented or
minimized by healthy living. The Office of the National Nurse is the right
“First Step” to take! Nurses have historically been those on the front lines
of public education and individualized patient education, and I can think of
no one better to lead this initiative than a nurse.

We also believe that a National Nurse can be the person to unite the nursing
profession, provide clear vision, and change the traditional image of nursing.
For too long, nursing has not been recognized for the role it plays in the overall
healthcare system, and that needs to be rectified. The media has portrayed
nurses in a less than positive light, in spite of the fact that nursing has been
the under girding of the nation’s health care for more than a century.

We wish you much success and are happy to assist you in this campaign!
