Always A Nurse

Thank you to the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International, for their inclusion of a full-page story about the Office of the National Nurse Campaign in their August 2007 newsletter, Always A Nurse. The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support the learning, knowledge and professional development of nurses committed to making a difference in health worldwide. Founded in 1922, the honor society has inducted more than 400,000 members in 114 countries. Members include practicing nurses, instructors, researchers, policymakers, entrepreneurs and others.

The NNNO appreciates the efforts of the Sigma Theta Tau in helping to spread the word about the Office of the National Nurse. Some of the information in this article reviews the legislation that was introduced in the 109th Congress by Representative Lois Capps (CA-23). This included the four primary responsibilities of the Office of the National Nurse that were outlined in HR 4903, the bill that expired in the 109th Congress. To read what is now being advocated, visit this website.

We all heard this week that obesity continues to be a growing problem for Americans that is leading to more heart disease and type 2 diabetes than ever before. Jeff Levi, executive director of the Trust for America's Health claims "It's one of those issues where everyone believes there's an epidemic, but it's not getting the political attention it ought to." This is a major reason that supporters of an Office of the National Nurse continue their plight to establish this position within our federal government. We need health care, not sick care, and this begins with prevention. Who are the best educated and equipped to lead this effort? Nurses!

Visit Cafe Press today and buy a totebag, a button or a teeshirt to support the efforts to create an Office of the National Nurse. One of our supporters who we will acknowledge in this week's newsletter has created several new logos that we will be featuring on this website and using on our Cafe Press merchandise. Thanks for your emails and thanks for your support.
