Dear Congresswoman Capps:
I want to inform you that Working Nurse Magazine
, after careful analysis and consideration, has decided to fully support the initiative put forth by the Office of National Nurses to have a Chief Nurse Officer within the Office of the Surgeon General. We have concluded that this initiative is of great importance in helping to improve healthcare within the United States.
We are hopeful that you will reintroduce legislation that would create the Office of the National Nurse. Working Nurse Magazine
is an organization that is in touch with over 150,000 registered nurses in the Southwestern portion of the country. We are well aware of the issues and challenges that are faced. Having a full time Chief Nurse Officer embedded with the Office of Surgeon General will bring more visibility to all of those nurses who are already on the front lines the nation’s healthcare system, and to all of the tens of thousands of future nurses that this country needs.
Nurses need an advocate at the highest level of government. Please use this letter as our recommendation of legislation that would accomplish this important goal.
President, Working Nurse Magazine
