Urges Nurses to make their voices heard

American Nurses Association (ANA) President Rebecca M. Patton, MSN, RN, CNOR, along with other ANA representatives, had an opportunity to share ideas on health care reform with the Republican Platform Committee at a meeting Thursday, July 10. The meeting was part of the Republican Platform Committee’s effort to gather input from across the country as they work to establish their platform. Their new web based initiative, launched July 11th, creates a forum where “voters from all walks of life can provide ideas, submit comments and actively participate in the development of the 2008 Republican Party Platform.” It is a significant opportunity for nurses to make their voices heard on their vital role in health system reform.
