Nurses speak out! - www.nightingalesnurses.org
Construction is dangerous work. If we get injured or become ill much of our care and recovery will depend upon nurses. The California Nurses Association (CNA) recently has had to stand up for sane staffing ratios and working conditions that will ensure patients get quality care. They deserve our support!
Nurses are on the front line of patient care and see daily the results of injury and disease on individuals and their families. The disease and death caused by tobacco has inspired some activist nurses to form the Nightingales and call for an end to tobacco marketing and promotion. Go to www.nightingalesnurses.org and read about their campaign and their "Letters Across America" project.
