NDNA Opportunities for Nurses and Nursing Students!

Posted 14 days ago

The NDNA 2020 Annual Business Meeting took place on Monday, September 21 – virtually.  At the meeting, two Main Motions were proposed.  One of them states, “I move that NDNA investigates actions and policies that we can lend our support to, to improve health equity and reduce healthcare disparities.”

It was determined that a task force be formed to work on this motion.  A follow-up meeting took place on Friday, October 2.  NDNA Member and writer of the Main Motion, Mylynn Tufte,  President Tessa Johnson, Director of Advocacy, Tania Brost, and Executive Director, Sherri Miller, discussed opportunities for nurses and nursing students to join this task force.
