The Prospective Role of the National Nurse


Focus on Future Medicine recently interviewed NNNO Board Members Teri Mills and Alisa Schneider. This is the second of a two part series. During this segment, Schneider describes the goals and vision for the role of the National Nurse that would include promoting health, improving health literacy, and reducing health disparities. The National Nurse would also raise visibility and highlight the critical role that nurses perform in protecting the public's health.

When asked how the ONN would complement the work of the Surgeon General, Schneider explains the CDC generates a great deal of material that is focused on health promotion; the Office of the Surgeon General synthesizes and prioritizes the health agenda for the country; what is needed is a mechanism to deliver these messages and this is what is being proposed to be provided through the Office of the National Nurse. At the local level, nurses and other health professionals would be encouraged to partner with existing infrastructures such as the Medical Reserve Corps, Parish nursing and the American Red Cross to expand and replicate successful prevention programs. It is particularly important and desirable that these efforts reach under-served communities to help eliminate health disparities.
