I think it will be achieved if enough nurses and others continue the work.
We can't give up. How about struggling FOR something good?
We assigned nursed to each and every statewide elected official and visited them or their staff. We made cards with our title (RN), phone number, and later email.
We answered their questions explaining what a Foley Catheter is, the difference between systolic and diastolic BP, and just about any question your friends and family members ask.
We listened to their hospital stories.
We explained our frustration at our patients being forced to share us with too many other patients.
We let them know that all night, every holiday and weekend the sickest patients in town were cared for by nurses. Patients are admitted to the hospital because they need nursing care. That is the only reason.
We worked on the campaigns of those who promised to support our safe staffing legislation.
We interviewed candidates for office and ONLY supported those who promised to support safe nurse staffing for hospitals. Please enjoy this video even if you don't read any of the above:
