Thank you to Rosemary McCarthy, President of The American Association of Nurse Attorneys
and the Board of Directors for inviting Teri Mills MS, RN, ANP, CNE and Alisa Schneider MSN, RN to keynote their 27th Annual Meeting and Conference held in Tampa, Florida on October 23-25, 2008. Presenting to this esteemed group of professionals was an honor, as TAANA announced their support
of the initiative earlier this year.
Teri and Alisa’s presentation, “The Office of the National Nurse: Policy for a New Era of Prevention” introduced the initiative to nurse attorneys, nurse law school students, and legal nurse consultants. The group participated in discussion of the current evidence for the need for a nurse-led focus on prevention, the political process the National Nursing Network Organization has used to move the initiative, and the current obstacles the NNNO is facing in their work.
