GALLUP RANKS NURSES #1 IN HONESTY, ETHICS, 16 OF PAST 17 YEARS
There’s never been a better time for nurses to have a national media presence. With an 85% honesty and ethics rating from Gallup Poll’s annual ranking of how Americans view 21 major professions—nurses come out on top. And strong leadership is critical if the vision of a transformed health care system is to be realized.
Patients and healthcare professionals deserve better.
Rural hospitals and health clinics are but a distant memory, forty-four million Americans live without health coverage; pharmaceutical prices are through the roof; insurance companies are charging more for premiums and paying less of the cost; the current administration is trying to dismantle Social Security, Medicare, and the V.A. — and there is no end in sight…
Let’s face it healthcare in America is broken
Ok, let’s clarify that. The financial mechanism paying for our healthcare delivery system is fundamentally broken, and therein lies the big problem. Within a system of excellent medical care, if the patient doesn’t have access to healthcare, little else matters. That’s why we are on a mission to find solutions.
Setting the record straight
…about Medicare for All and other issues. Healthcare in America is the first program of its kind — focusing on fact-based discussions led by nurses, the most trusted professionals twenty years running. We are creating a dialog with national experts who offer facts and solutions, care providers, and the patients who are directly impacted by our broken system.
We’ll explore the ramifications of the apparent demise of the Affordable Care Act on access to healthcare, nurses as activists, educators and, advocates, what we can all do to forward conversations that can make a difference to the far-reaching challenges that affect us all.
