Have you ever wondered what happened after all the hoopla from the Miss Colorado and The View controversy? Remember, all the nurses bonded together and we finally found our voice. It was a great time to be a nurse! A really great moment of pride. But then what? Well…. something did happen. Nurses found their voice. Nurses realized that apart we will accomplish nothing, but together, we are a million person force to be reckoned with. A few, humble nurses took that message to heart and were inspired to have a rally in Washington DC regarding the one issues we almost all agree on – staffing. On May 12, on the steps of the Capitol, Nurses Take DC!
What is really amazing about this rally, besides taking about an issue no business entity wants to address – it was founded by nurses. I hate to say “just nurses”, but truly by people working in the trenches. Never in my career have I witness the unity of nurses like I have seen now. These grass roots groups are doing what no professional organization could accomplish – they are bringing us together over the real issues that truly affect our patients and daily life.
So, please take a minute to read more about the Nurses Plan DC Rally. Take the time to really consider attending, helping to volunteer or at the very least, hit the share button and get the word out. If there was ever a time we really need to work together, it is now. We are on the verge of an enormous shortage and if we do not start making changes now, it will only get worse for our patients.
Just remember, any action or level of participation in this mater is important!
Take care, be safe & wash your hands.
