Teri and Alisa traveled to Atlanta for the 35th Annual NBNA Conference to present on the Office of the National Nurse: Policy for A New Era of Prevention. The presentation was attended and well received by over 50 participants. A nurse from Chicago stated that nurses need to act versus react to health policy and practice. She also commented that the Office of the National Nurse is a way to move our illness -care system toward a health care system. Another nurse from New York stated this policy is applicable immediately. A New Jersey nurse claimed health policy issues focused on prevention are essential and should be brought forward to establish the Office of the National Nurse.
