Nurses March! – March 22, 2017
It’s time to stop taking care of too many patients at once. It’s time for nurses to stop wondering what was forgotten after the shift ends. It’s time for new nurses and seasoned veterans to stop fleeing the profession stating, “I’ve had enough.” It’s time for nurses to stand up and advocate for change – change that benefits patients and nurses alike.
This year’s Michigan Nurse MARCH! inspired, educated, and motivated nurses and nursing students to boldly state, “I’ve had enough and I’m rallying for change.” Attendees received the tools and information they need to effectively advocate for their practice with legislators, administrators and the public.
