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.
The National Nurse Team will be returning to Washington DC this September and your help is needed! Airfares from the West to the East Coast have skyrocketed, and your contribution will help to ensure that this trip is equally as successful to those taken in the past.
There are three ways that you can make a donation. Visit the National Nurse PayPal Page and consider making a one time or monthly donation. Small recurring donations help immensely as these add up and make a difference.

Another option has been made available via an NNNO Advocacy Team member, Tara Candela, who has set up a page on Go Fund Me, with a goal of raising $3,000. This is the cost of two hotel rooms that will each sleep three supporters for three nights and three air tickets.
You also may contact the NNNO Board if you prefer 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 while we are on Capitol Hill. Thank you to those who have sent in donations from California, Massachusetts, Ohio, Oregon, Wisconsin, Vermont, and Virginia.
