National organizations are stepping up and partnering with the NNNO to secure passage of the National Nurse Act of 2013. On September 10, 2014, the Case Management Society of America (CMSA) Leadership, Board of Directors, and Public Policy Committee, along with nearly 60 members of the CMSA case management community from various states across the country, met once again on Capitol Hill with House and Senate members of Congress.
Coincidentally, this was the same day that NNNO advocates were on the Hill.
During their appointments, CMSA delivered an important message regarding the critical value professional case managers add to the health care system to ensure safe transitions and quality, efficient care for the populations being served across the health care continuum. Overall, CMSA reported they had a very successful day on the Hill.
They advocated for the clients they serve and brought several bills to the attention of legislators including the National Nurse Act of 2013. CMSA believes this bill would give a greater voice to issues important to nurses and nursing, as well as increasing health awareness, improving healthcare literacy, and reducing health disparities. The National Nurse for Public Health would raise awareness about what everyone can do to prevent illness while improving our own health and that of our families.
