Office of the National Nurse In the News

Policy, Politics, and Nursing Practice

Teri Mills and Alisa Schneider’s article, The Office of the National Nurse, Leadership for A New Era of Prevention, appears in the just released February 2007 issue (volume 8, issue 1, pages 64-70) of Policy, Politics, and Nursing Practice. To view the abstract visit Policy, Politics, and Nursing Practice.

This commentary discusses the need to focus the nation on health and the need for a national presence of nursing leadership. The three tenets of the Office of the National Nurse are explained and evidence is provided to support a nurse-led, multiple format delivery of health promotion education. The article concludes with a synopsis of the National Nurse Act of 2006 and includes response to opposing viewpoints.

Single copies of the article are not available, but if you attend or teach in a school of nursing, you should be able to obtain the journal through interlibrary loan or through summit. The journal will also be on line at Sage Publications.

Thank you to Christina Orlovsky, senior writer at The Office of the National Nurse Gets a Push Forward.

"In the nearly two years since Teri Mills, MS, RN, ANP, CNE, expressed her thoughts to the New York Times about creating an Office of the National Nurse, nurses and legislators nationwide have continuously offered their support for her cause. The latest supporter: the state of New York, led by New York Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther, a nurse, who encouraged the New York Assembly to unanimously adopt a resolution encouraging Congress to make Mills’ vision a reality," states Orlovsky.
