Greater Passaic Valley Public Health Nurses Association Endorses HR 1119


Thank you to the Greater Passaic Valley (New Jersey) Public Health Nurses Association for their unanimous vote of support for HR 1119 The National Nurse Act of 2011. Here is their letter of support:

April 28, 2011

National Nursing Network Organization
c/o Teri Mills

Dear Teri,

The Greater Passaic Valley Public Health Nurses Association is an organization of approximately forty-five Public Health Nurses from the northern New Jersey area. The current legislation establishing a National Nurse for Public Health has been among newsworthy items shared during monthly meetings. A program regarding HR 1119, the bill outlining and establishing a National Nurse, was presented to the nurses on March 24, 2011. At the subsequent meeting on April 28 the nurses unanimously moved to support HR 1119 with a letter and a monetary donation to NNNO to educate an elected official about HR 1119 and the benefits of establishing a National Nurse for Public Health.

The Greater Passaic Valley Public Health Nurses Association supports establishment of a National Nurse for Public Health because we believe that

1. The National Nurse will strengthen public health principles and the public health nursing perspective at a higher level of government.
2. The National Nurse will be the voice of the collective tenets upon which all public health nurses base their practices.
3. The National Nurse will be a visible presence in the media to advocate for public health issues.

The Greater Passaic Valley Public Health Nurses Association thanks the members of the National Nursing Network Organization for their tenacity and dedication to seeing HR 1119 become a reality by establishing the position of National Nurse for Public Health. Please accept our donation of $100.00 to continue toward this goal. We are eager to add our voice to this message and effort.

Yours in good health,

Leslie Leonard, RN, BSN
GPVPHNA President
