Any attempt to reform American health care must follow four major principles.
Increasing the number of Registered Nurses helps keep patients safe.
Fully-trained nurses are critical to quality and cost-effectiveness.
Advanced Practice Registered Nurses should be able to provide appropriate, timely care for their patients.
As the largest single group of health care professionals, nurses are increasingly caring for those victimized by gun violence and those forced to confront the physical and emotional consequences of these senseless acts.
Overall, the likelihood of health care workers being exposed to violence is higher than prison guards or police officers.
Nurses remain on the front lines of the national health crisis.
Increase personal protective equipment (PPE) production.
