Thank you to National Nursing Network Organization's Advocacy Team member Vivien Mudgett RNC, MA, MSN who wrote A National Voice for Nurses.
This article passionately describes H.R. 379, The National Nurse Act of 2015 and explains why a National Nurse for Public Health would benefit nursing and improve public health. Mudgett states there are only five nurses in Congress, yet there are over 3.1 million registered nurses work in the United States. The expertise and voice of a pubic health nurse is needed in the public policy arena. Mudgett concludes, “It is time to raise public awareness of the value that nurses bring to the table, isn’t it?” The NNNO and supporters of the National Nurse Act of 2015 agree!
