National Nurse News Story

A grassroots organization of nurses is working to establish the The Office of the National Nurse, and the idea is getting a lot of attention from around the country. National Nurse bumper stickers are starting to show up on cars, and major newspapers are carrying stories about the National Nurse Act, sponsored by Rep. Lois Capps (CA-D), who is also a nurse. Go Lois!

Here’s a link to a story appearing in today’s edition of The Oregonian.

I believe that every American deserves a nurse.

I really like the idea of the program, but I would wonder how nurses would reach out to others? What type of setting would it be in? I enjoyed the article that you linked and thought "this is a great idea." How would you get the uninsured to participate or would it help out in that sense to give them medical care? I always have a million questions when I ready something like this.
Topics like this always interest me because I have ADHD/bipolar disorder type one. I am always interested in looking up things online and going to start posting topics about mental illness after the election.(When it is election year I am always glued to editorials in newspapers and temporarily become a political junkie. Afterwards, the thought of politics triggers migraines if I stick on the topic too long.) Ever since I was diagnosed in 2000, after my first hospitalization, with bipolar(it runs on my maternal side of the family)I often look at resources for mental disorders and understand how it affects oneself and families. I am always trying to erase the stereotype that mentally ill people are helpless and imbeciles and try my best to advocate ethical treatment for mentally ill persons.

I could certainly use a nurse. I'm not sick or anything but the company would be nice. With a few exceptions, very few, I have found nurses to be great company. Of course I am a retired cop and we [cops and nurses] always had a thing together. I suspect it had something to do with blood and brains often found outside of the body......
