be a part of it!
** nurses to send wake-up call **
patients need quality time, not overtime. that's the
message the seiu nurse alliance will deliver to congress
and state legislators on may 8 - as part of our national
wake-up call from america's nurses.
** get involved on may 8th **
come to the u.s. capitol on may 8, and join hundreds
of nurses who'll be sending congress a wake-up call
- literally. we're bringing our alarm clocks and setting
them off in unison. for event and registration information,
if you can't make it to washington, you have two ways
to make your voice heard on may 8.
(1) fax a letter to your members of congress on may
8 and ask them to support the safe nursing and patient
care act. we'll send you a reminder with a link to
a sample letter that week.
(2) join thousands of nurses across the country who'll
make phone calls to their members of congress on may
(a) call the capitol switchboard toll-free at 1-877-611-0063
and ask for your representative and/or senators.
(b) tell them to support and co-sponsor the safe nursing
and patient care act (hr 3238/s 1686).
the more phone calls and letters we send, the more
congress will get the message. make plans to participate
and ask other nurses and supporters to do the same!
