We encourage you to read this article
that was published in the October 2007 issue of NP World News, an official publication that reaches over 30,000 nurse practitioners in the United States. This piece describes the campaign to establish the Office of the National Nurse and details the original proposal that led to legislation in the 109th Congress.
The Board of the National Nursing Network Organization is working diligently with others to fine tune many points, particularly how we strengthen the Chief Nurse Officer position of the USPHS to become the Office of the National Nurse, and how we can successfully use the current infrastructure of the Medical Reserve Corps to integrate the teams of volunteer nurses and other health care providers who wish to serve their country in delivering health promotion and prevention.
We welcome your support, your feedback, and your comments as we process forward. Please email any suggestions to Teri.
