A Letter to Our Colleagues

Dear Professional Nurse Colleagues,

Don't miss this opportunity to invest in the future of nursing and in the health of America. A small donation of $20.00 unites you to a broad based national network that works to provide a full-time, visible, effective National Nurse to do what nurses do best: health promotion, prevention, health education and nurse recruitment. This very small investment on your part puts you in the big picture.

Please help. Please read on, to see how you will make an impact.

Members of the NNNO are going to Washington, DC to lobby for HR 4601, The National Nurse Act of 2010. We are in need of your financial support ASAP, and you can be 100% certain that every penny will be utilized responsibly!

We are gearing up to lobby Washington DC and we welcome and encourage supporters to join us. Visiting our elected officials on Capitol Hill and with national leaders is important to generate and solidify support for HR 4601-The National Nurse Act of 2010. We must bring newly elected legislators on board, and re-engage members who have supported our goals in the past.

In contrast to the National Nursing Network Organization, lobbyists for big companies spend millions to influence Congress. We operate on a shoe-string budget but our strongest asset is a great idea, fueled with vision, passion, tenacity, and supporters like you. While the NNNO board members ALWAYS absorb much of travel costs personally, donations are needed to defray these expenses, as well as daily business operations. Not one donation penny goes toward any salary for any NNNO board member, or other person. And every cent is diligently accounted for.

A $50 donation by our endorsing organizations would go a long way to cover this outreach. And remember that all $20 contributions from individuals will assure your legislators receive a packet and certificate acknowledging your support establishing an Office of the National Nurse by elevating the current CNO of the USPHS to bring more visibility to nursing’s role in health promotion.

To date we have received donations from supporters living in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, New Hampshire, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Vermont, Virginia and the District of Columbia and we heartily thank them!

Please make your donation on line or by emailing the NNNO Board for information on where to send a check. *Please be aware that while the NNNO is a non-profit corporation, it is not tax exempt, and therefore your contributions are not tax deductible.

The sooner we get our National Nurse, the sooner the knowledge of nurses can be better utilized to get our nation on track to prevention and wellness. We promise to work hard and relentlessly on Capital Hill.
