  4. 4. nursingpins: Did see the blog http://twurl.nl/ukepdo - nurses need a national voice that can be heard #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:20 MOMofZEJT: #RNChat yes from that blog, not sure reliablity, but 3.8 % nurses belong to ANA group? isn't that the National assoiciation? 4/6/2010 12:20 nursingpins: The ANA has to be more aggressive to be effective at anything - must have a way to enforce any policies as will a national nurse #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:22 nursechenene: @nursingpins I agree. Our state does not have a large percentage that belongs to state nsg group for local legislation. #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:23 nursechenene: Wonder what nat'l nurse involvement would be-T1 #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:23 SusuG514: Wonder how the new healthcare bill will affect this position. #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:24 MOMofZEJT: #RNChat I think a national nurse needs to be a NURSE and not a political figure! 4/6/2010 12:25 nursingpins: Nurses need to get out of the grip of hospital control and reclaim the profession - a national nurse will be a good start -#rnchat 4/6/2010 12:26 nursechenene: @MOMofZEJT I think they'll be both and possibly be appointed by party association. #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:26 philbaumann: T1 Perhaps ANA may have a small point about words. Still: Nursing needs a huge self- esteem boost. That alone may be worth it. #RNchat 4/6/2010 12:26 AMartinRN: #rnchat completely agree this position should be filled by a currently practicing RN 4/6/2010 12:26 nursingpins: RT @MOMofZEJT: #RNChat I think a national nurse needs to be a NURSE and not a political figure! 4/6/2010 12:26 SusuG514: @MOMofZEJT I agree with you.

  5. 5. nursechenene: @SusuG514 I feel that way about nsg managemt in the hospital setting too. #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:28 SusuG514: @nursechenene excellent point and couldn't agree more. #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:29 InfusionNurse: T1 - there has to be a collective nursing voice to get this NNA HR 4601 passed... #RNchat 4/6/2010 12:30 knwanurse: @MOMofZEJT i agree a political figure would not know what the important topics were if not a nurse. #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:30 nursingpins: Nurses need leadership badly - will follow if leadership could be heard - nurses are on their own as of now without direction #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:30 Nerdnurse: RT @nursechenene: @SusuG514 I feel that way about nsg managemt in the hospital setting too. #rnchat --totally agree! 4/6/2010 12:30 knwanurse: @nursechenene If you are going to be in the heathcare field then you should be a nurse #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:30 SusuG514: @AmartinRN I also agree with you. Do like that it would bring more light to nurse students and also retired nurses though. #RNchat 4/6/2010 12:31 MOMofZEJT: #RNChat Thankfully school nursing has a wonderful figure in the DHSS who fights for nurses esp school nurses 4/6/2010 12:31 ytleyva: Nurses shouldn't avoid politics. A national nurse should be a nurse and a political figure. #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:31 AMartinRN: #rnchat agree with nsg mgt in hospital 4/6/2010 12:31 InfusionNurse: T1 To be effective & to survive in the position RT @ytleyva: A national nurse should be a nurse and a political figure. #RNchat 4/6/2010 12:35 rnchat: I think we can agree that a National Nurse needs to be a nurse. It's impossible to avoid politics but it should be professional. #RNchat 4/6/2010 12:35 rnchat: T1 Too often "outsiders" make important decisions without *any* clue about the nuances of how nursing works. That's a problem. #RNchat 4/6/2010 12:36 nursingpins: A nightmare would be a National Nurse appointed from the AHA etc. - could be trouble if politics involved #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:39
  6. 6. ladydawnie: #RNchat by using the 'productive ward project' nurses at ward level can decide on what needs changing, works for them and the patient. 4/6/2010 12:40 SusuG514: @nursingpins I agree but how would you propose the position get filled? #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:41 nursingpins: The wrong person as the National Nurse could spell death for the profession #rnchat 4/6/2010 12:41 SusuG514: @windsorrn add #rnchat to your posts and they will be included in chat 4/6/2010 12:42 nursechenene: It will be interesting to see who is appointed as the 1st for this post.
