Thank you to Dorland Health’s Editor in Chief, Anne Llewellyn RN-BC, MS, BHSA, CCM, CRRN for writing an up to date and accurate account of her participation in the National Nursing Network Organization’s March trip to Washington DC. The article, National Nurse Initiative Gains Steam on Capitol Hill, is well worth taking a look at, as it includes strong rationale as to why this legislation is timely and needed. Here is an excerpt from this article:

“Today, with the focus on prevention, education, consumer empowerment and engagement as the keys to containing escalating healthcare costs, all eyes are turning to nurses. Why, you ask? Because nurses are the most trusted and largest segment of the healthcare workforce, numbering 3.1 million registered nurses throughout the United States.

Currently, there is a growing grassroots effort that will provide leadership and strengthen efforts by nurses in every community to assist in the nationwide paradigm shift to prevention and wellness, which will empower consumers to be active in their care and contain escalating healthcare costs. The National Nurse for Public Health campaign is being spearheaded by the National Nursing Network Organization, a volunteer advocacy group whose members have worked since 2006 to spread the word on the effort and gain support from consumers, healthcare professionals, national organizations and members of Congress.”

Returning to Capitol Hill This September

The support the National Nursing Network Organization received for the most recent trip to Washington DC was tremendous and greatly appreciated. It is because of your financial support that we are now planning a return trip this September.

We cannot do this without you!

Please consider making a recurring donation on line or emailing the NNNO Board of Directors to learn where to mail a check. For contributions of $20 or more, the team will place a certificate in your honor inside an informational packet that will be hand delivered to the offices of your U.S. Representative or Senators when our team returns to Capitol Hill.

*The NNNO is a 501c4 non-profit organization, but is not tax exempt (because our purpose is to advocate for the initiative) and therefore your contributions are NOT tax deductible.
