It was difficult to see important programs forced to shut down and hard working Americans struggling to get by. With all the political discussion and commentators each saying something different it was hard to hear authenticity in the midst of all the debates. One thing was clear; Nurses’ voices were rising above the noise.
Over 1,000 nurses took action and wrote to their member of Congress last week—thank you.
Phew. We are relieved that politicians have come together and reached a deal to end the fiscal impasse. Government will be funded through January 15 at sequestration levels and the debt limit extended until February 7.
Now is when the real work begins. Don’t let the action stop here! Share your activism with friends and help recruit new support for nursing issues – all from within Facebook!
