April 4-11th is National Public Health Week-Time to Take Action

It’s time for America to have a National Nurse . Nurses need to become strong leaders and involved in every aspect of health are decisions. This week we celebrate National Public Health Week (April 4-11) and recognize that this is a perfect time to support and endorse the National Nurse campaign.
From the 3/30/11 National Nurse Newsletter….
“Prevention includes being free of injury and the theme for National Public Health Week is “Safety is NO Accident”. We urge our supporters to use this timeframe Apr 4 – 11 and commemorate National Public Health Week by contacting their elected Representatives to support HR 1119.  Pass this message along to other nurses, and encourage them to ask their Representative to co-sponsor HR 1119, The National Nurse Act of 2011.”
