As a bottom line we all want the conditions in our hospitals to be very safe for the patients. I think there is a better way to effect the changes needed than by looking for the perfect representative of nurses. Let's look at the perfect representative for patients.

One example of this is at http://www.patientadvocacy.org/
Maybe we should turn our attention from ourselves and support the bigger picture.
