#WeAreAllPatients

National Nurse to Patient Ratios, Mandatory Overtime Regulation, & Dangerous Work Conditions

Nurse Nirvana is working to provide a campaign to help nurses come together to enact change through social media and a national hashtag of #WeAreAllPatients to bring public awareness and demand Congress pass safe nursing laws. Together we can help eradicate the top 3 issues affecting nursing today of National Nurse to Patient Ratios, Mandatory Overtime Regulation, & Dangerous Work Conditions.  

Sign Petitions To Make Nursing Safer

National Nurse To PAtient Ratios

We have to ask ourselves as nurses the reason legislation is not at the forefront of priorities for our Congress? High Patient to Nurse Ratios affect every person, not just nurses. We are all patients at one point in our lives. Sign our petition to help end unsafe practices.

Mandatory Overtime Regulation

Mandatory overtime for nurses is one of the most pressing of the top 3 issues affecting nursing today. It is a hot topic being addressed currently by various states individually. 18 States have already instituted some degree of mandatory overtime legislation, there is still a long way to go.

Dangerous Work Conditions

It is estimated that 650,000 individuals injured each year in the healthcare industry alone. It is no wonder why dangerous work conditions are one of the top 3 issues affecting nursing today. Sign the petition to let our Congress know that it should be the nurse who decides if they work overtime and not hospitals.

Dear Sir or Madame,

Nurses not only can impact their communities, states, and the country’s policies, regulations, and well-being, but can be global advocates as well! We’ll look at the 2018 elections and the impact on the political advocacy work individually and in a coalition, as well as offer tips and words of wisdom from our members of Nurse Nirvana on how to make every year a year of advocacy at any level, in any role and setting.

Mandatory Overtime Regulation

Safe Nurse to Patient Ratios Saves Lives! Sign Now!

It’s up to us as nurses to decide when enough is enough, yet our decisions can affect other people’s lives. This should not be a hospital administrative decision and only mandated in emergency scenarios that are clearly defined.  Nurses are being taken advantage of for hospital profits and forced to work over their capacity of safe patient care.

Dangerous Work Conditions

Safe Nurse to Patient Ratios Saves Lives! Sign Now!

For too long nurses and administrators have said: “It’s just part of the job”. Some local agencies will do little to file reports and prosecute offenders who perpetrate workplace violence. It is up to us as nurses to disseminate what is “part of the job” and what isn’t and Congress to pass laws that protect nurses in the workplace with harder sentences and zero tolerance laws.
