Buy real cialis I am a member of the American Nurses Association and a dedicated supporter of HR 4601 The National Nurse Act.
Buy real cialis For the life of me, buy real cialis I cannot understand ANA’s reluctance to endorse the National Nurse Act.
Buy real cialis The infrastructure already exists, buy real cialis in fact the position already exists. Buy real cialis The Act seeks to have the Chief Nursing Officer of the US Public Health Service designated as the National Nurse.
Buy real cialis There is nothing political about this – the nominating procedure for the position does not change. Buy real cialis It is not a presidential appointment, buy real cialis nor is it a Cabinet position.
Buy real cialis And it costs nothing to implement – it’s already funded. Buy real cialis It takes no resources away from other nursing initiatives; it competes with no other nursing organization.
Buy real cialis But more importantly, buy real cialis it gives the public a visible nurse leader as our health care delivery system transitions to one that focuses on health and the prevention of disease.
Buy real cialis And yet, buy real cialis the ANA does not endorse the Chief Nurse Officer of the US Public Health Service being known as the National Nurse.
Buy real cialis Why?
Buy real cialis I sit here holding a copy of the ANA Social Policy Statement for Nursing (Second Edition). The Office of National Nurse promotes every aspect of our social policy.
Buy real cialis From the ANA “Definition of Nursing”:
Nursing is the protection, buy real cialis promotion and optimization of health and abilities, buy real cialis prevention of illness and injury…(p.6)
Buy real cialis From the ANA “Knowledge Base for Nursing Practice”:
Nurses partner with individuals, buy real cialis families, buy real cialis communities, buy real cialis and populations to address issues such as…healthcare systems and their relationships with access to and quality of healthcare…the environment and prevention of disease (p. Buy real cialis 7)
Buy real cialis From the ANA “Values and Assumptions of Nursing’s Social Contract”:
Public policy and the healthcare delivery system influence the health and well-being of society and professional nursing (p.3)
Buy real cialis These are the very foundation of the National Nurse Act.
Buy real cialis Imagine the impact of a focus on disease prevention and health promotion at the national level. Buy real cialis Imagine the Medical Reserve Corps gearing up with nurses who volunteer in their own communities – think of the impact on health disparities, buy real cialis on social inequities. Buy real cialis Imagine patient education on a national scale.
Buy real cialis Imagine the public understanding what nursing is…what we do.
HR 4601 was introduced on February 4th. Buy real cialis Fifteen members of Congress support it. Buy real cialis Four state legislatures are on board and over 100 organizations and prominent individuals are supporting it.
But not the ANA.
I want to know why.
No cost, buy real cialis no politics and an existing infrastructure ready to go…what more do you want?
Because from where I sit, buy real cialis the National Nurse Act seems to blend beautifully with the ANA.
So, buy real cialis speaking as a card-carrying-dues-paying member of the ANA, buy real cialis we need to get onboard.
We need to support HR 4601 The National Nurse Act.
