Thank you to the many national and state based affiliates who are going above and beyond sending a letter of support to the NNNO. The American Federation of Teachers hosted a successful Congressional Briefing on Capitol Hill in February; the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates mobilized a phone call campaign to U.S. Representatives and Senators; the West Virginia Nurses Association plans to publish a story this Fall about the National Nurse Act in their quarterly newsletter; the Greater Passaic Valley Public Health Nurses Association has been successful in convincing many Representatives within the New Jersey Congressional delegation to co-sponsor H.R. 379; and plans are underway with the Case Management Society of America to advocate jointly on Capitol Hill next month.
The National Nursing Network Organization extends its heartiest congratulations to NNNO Advocacy Team member Anne Llewellyn RN-BC, MS, BHSA, CCM, CRRN who was presented the Case Management Society of America's (CMSA) highest honor, the CMSA Lifetime Achievement Award, during its 25th Annual Conference and Expo.
The CMSA Board of Directors awards the Lifetime Achievement Award only to an individual who has made a significant contribution to practice of case management and in support of CMSA. The CMSA Lifetime Achievement Award honors Anne Llewellyn for having distinguished herself in both of these categories.
Anne is a registered nurse with over 30 years of experience in the healthcare industry. She holds a Master's Degree in Training and Development from St. Francis University and a Bachelor in Health Services from Barry University. Anne is a board certified case manager through the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the Commission for Case Manager Certification. She is also a certified registered rehabilitation nurse through the American Rehabilitation Nursing Association.
Anne is a past President of the Case Management Society of America and also Governor for District 27 of Quota International. She is a frequent speaker both nationally and internationally on issues related to the practice. In addition, she is a co-author of Case Management Review and Resource Manual: published by the American Nurses Credentialing Center and now in its 4th edition. Most recently, Anne served as Editor in Chief, Professional Patient Advocate Institute, Dorland Health.
While it is noted that Anne is all of the above mentioned, more importantly, she is an extraordinary human being, a great nurse leader, and an exemplary role model and mentor to those who choose to be politically active and make a difference in improving the health of our society. Despite her amazingly busy schedule, Anne is always available and willing to share her expertise with others. We are proud to know her and it is an honor to call her our friend.
The National Nurse Team will be making its annual trek to Washington DC September 16-18th. You are invited to join supporters of H.R. 379, The National Nurse Act of 2015 on Capitol Hill. These days are action-packed, team oriented, and lots of fun. Newcomers to the political process are welcome. This is a great opportunity to get involved and learn effective strategies for meeting with your elected officials. These group meetings are pre-scheduled and materials are provided. If you are interested in participating please email the NNNO Board
Thank you to the many contributors who have helped to make this trip possible. So far, packets of information with certificates recognizing donors from California, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, and Virginia will be delivered to Congressional members who represent those states/districts. If you would like to ensure that the team visits with your elected officials, please 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.
