I hope each and every one of you had a great Nurses Week!!! If we had magic wands we could make all those wishes come true. There is good legislation in the federal and state legislatures regarding a National Nurse for Pubic Health, safe staffing, school nurses, allowing NPs to order home health care, and many other nursing issues.
I encourage you to get involved in these campaigns and work to improve nursing for yourselves and all nurses. In turn it will improve patient care. As we move closer to the 2016 election year, investigate candidate’s views on nursing and health care. Bombard them with your thoughts and ideas to educate them about the things nurses and patients experience. And get them to commit to a platform that includes health care issues.
I want to THANK each of you who posted comments here, on Facebook and emailed them to me. To select winners and make sure every entry got a prize, I had to put your names in a hat and draw them for some of the prizes, I hope everyone can use the prize the won, or has a nurse or student nurse to pass it along to.
