This past May RADM Susan Orsega was selected to become the 11th Chief Nurse Officer of the U.S. Public Health Service. According to a statement RADM Orsega issued shortly after her selection, she declared her vision to be leading the way to a healthier America and world. Her number one goal to accomplish this mission will be to promote prevention by putting it into practice. Supporters of the National Nurse Act who received RADM Ortega's announcement were quick to note how aligned her ambitions are with the vision of the National Nurse Act. This legislation would designate the same individual serving as the Chief Nurse Officer of the Public Health Service as the National Nurse for Public Health.
The National Nursing Network Organization commends and congratulates RADM Orsega. We wish her great success in her endeavors. On September 30, at 1300-1500 in the NIH Natcher Building, RADM Trent-Adams, the immediate past Chief Nurse will transfer command to RADM Orsega.
