A Better Approach to Better Health

Our nation’s approach to health and health care is broken. The U.S. spends more on health care than any other developed nation in the world but has some of the poorest health outcomes among wealthy countries.

Nurses Health Week

Nurses are highly educated professionals who make critical assessments and autonomous decisions. They educate and fearlessly advocate for patients and communities. They are prepared to be nursing leaders, administer health systems and education future generations of nurses and practitioners. They devote their careers to promoting the health and wellbeing of our society at home and across the globe. Nurses are the most trusted profession, they make a difference and save lives. The nobility of their professionalism and compassion has been and continues to be on full display to the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. We salute those who have chosen nursing as their calling and encourage nursing students to continue their pursuit in this noble profession. National Nurses’ Week 2022 — May 6–12.
