This Land Is Our Land

Just in time for the New Hampshire primary, Beka at the Medscape Nursing blog offers a commentary on the Office of the National Nurse initiative called Time for Change. Beka frames the question to readers, "Do we need a National Nurse?"

Her conclusion is accurate when she claims, "The promoters of the Office of the National Nurse will not accept the status quo; they envision a nation where everyone can enjoy improved health and more productive lives."

Comments are welcome. Visit the Medscape Blog website and add your own.

As Martin Luther King professed, "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

News flash- Health Affairs reports the United States comes in last in the latest rankings on preventable deaths due to treatable conditions among 19 leading industrialized countries. True, the inability to afford health care provides the strongest rationale for this, but wouldn't an Office of the National Nurse be a strategy to ensure better public health outcomes through health education and prevention?
WE can do better.
