The President of the United States has the president of the American Medical Association and CEOs of healthcare insurance companies and others at the podium but where was nursing? I didn't see the president of the American Nurses Association in the background and on stage along with the president of the American Medical Association.
Will President Obama include nursing and advanced practice nurses in the push for healthcare reform?
See this well written commentary available on cnn.com
Nurses and professional associations who represent nurses and advanced practice nurses are not in the lime light along with the American Medical Associations.
Is it all about physicians in healthcare reform? What about nursing and nurses and other healthcare care professionals?
This is problem because nurses and other healthcare professionals don't have a seat at the table inhouse (how common are Nursing Staff Bylaws compared to Medical Staff Bylaws?) and may not have a seat at the table along with physicians in healthcare reform at the White House?
