Lobbying in Salem!

Here is a photo journal of the initial visit that supporters made to the Oregon State Capitol last January to lobby for SJM 5, a joint resolution that passed this month urging the United States Congress to enact legislation creating an Office of the National Nurse (ONN).

Congrats on the creation of the ONN! Awesome!
I have made it officially one of my life's mission to impact nurses with what I do. Making the working world a safer place for nurses so that they can care bette for their patients.

If I can ever help, let me know!

Thanks for your good wishes! Just to let you know though, this is a memorial that passed urging the US Congress to enact legislation to create the ONN-- it is not created yet.
Please email me ( and I will add you on the list to receive the National Nurse newsletter so that you can keep up to date.
