 We Salute !!! 

We are professional nurses who believe our strength is in professionalism and kindness to others, especially our nursing colleagues. 

Support your fellow nurses and act professionally in all you do.  Set examples of excellence and others will follow. 

You cannot add to the peace and good will of the world if you fail to create an atmosphere of harmony and love right where you live and work. -- Thomas Dreier

WE SALUTE !  We also gently point out a few areas in need of attention when and where needed..........See comments below on the ANA and the ANA/CA

We Salute:
The American Nurses Association/California 
on their new ANA/CA newspaper. "Nursing Voice" 
(We especially like the name!)
HOWEVER..........We were greatly disappointed to hear that they were in support of a Bill that was introduced for consideration last year in the California Legislature. After many of us wrote to our Representatives and met with some, the Bill was tabled for further study.
The ANA/CA could be a much larger group. Maybe they need to listen more to the voice of ALL nurses. They say they are not connected with the CNA but then they speak in support of this Bill which would make the card check the way for unions to organize our hospitals. Do you want to be FORCED into union membership and lose your Democratic right to a vote? The card check is being pushed nationally and is in fact being pushed as a Bill right now in Congress. It is HR Bill 800 and you would be wise to read about it, write your congressman and speak out against this Bill.  You can easily find out how to contact your Congressman at this site
Be sure to read the Guidelines on Communicating with Congress.
To see the official ANA statement on HR 800 go here....
A Statement: ANA Announces its Endorsement for the Employee Free Choice Act (H.R. 800) [pdf]
(March 2, 2007) I rest my case. The ANA obviously has not taken the time to listen to the many nurses who have experienced the intimidation, aggressive organizing and abuse from union organizers. If they REALLY understood what this meant to professional nurses who refuse to be part of such activity, they would not be so supportive of this Bill.
And now you know why so many nurses across the country are not excited about joining the ANA.
HERE IT IS AGAIN if you missed it above
A Statement: ANA Announces its Endorsement for the Employee Free Choice Act (H.R. 800) [pdf]
(March 2, 2007) 

 The ANA Mission Statement: The ANA is the only full-service organization representing the nation's  2.9 million Registered Nurses through its 54 constituent member nurses associations. We hope to see in the near future that they really do represent ALL of our interests.
