The Office of National Nurse

jitcrunch.aspx.jpg

Imagine

A national spokesperson for the nursing profession,to be created by the United States Congress.

A Registered Nurse in an offical government position to represent nursing to the public, deliver weekly speeches promoting health education and the nursing perspective while focusing national attention on the nursing profession.

Imagine

Volunteer National Nurse teams responding in times of crisis, or helping to deliver health education to the public.

You may not have to imagine for much longer.

What started as an op/ed piece in the New York Times written by Teri Mills, an RN and Nurse Educator from Portland, Oregon has turned into H.R. 4903, a bill to create an Office of the National Nurse.

Let’s add our voices to the many who have already supported this new representation of our profession.

Visit the National Nurse web site for information.

And check out the totally cool “store” where your purchase can help fund the passage of this bill (do I sound like I live with a teenager or what?). Teri makes it easy by giving you easy access to your representatives and ideas on how to facilitate the ongoing efforts to pass this bill.

Keep up with the latest by subscribing to the free email updates put out by the National Nurse team.

Is your representative in support of H.R. 4903?

Now please excuse me while I take my own advice and go show my support….
