Advocating for Nurse Leaders on Task Force

With the recent announcement of the Pandemic Task Force, I noticed that there was no nursing representation.  This seems like an oversight to not have nurses represented in the national response.  We know if our profession is involved that outcomes will normally be better than without the nurse's perspective.  Currently, there is a small group of nurses forming on Twitter with the #nurseontaskforce hashtag.  Please note that this is not an attack on the President-Elect, this is advocating for our profession.  If you are on Twitter, please post using the hashtag.  One of the primary advocates is Theresa Brown,  a clinical nurse, and author of "The Shift"  so you can check her Twitter for more information. https://Twitter.com/TheresaBrown

Agree with you 100%.  Nurses need a seat at the Pandemic Task force to add our perspective to help get COVID-19 under control.
