May 6-12 is National Nurses Week:
Defend the Affordable Care Act and protect high quality patient care
“Many patients don’t know about the Affordable Care Act—there are huge information gaps. In reality, the law is helping many of the people I know and work with.”
—Mary Burke, RN, Local 199, Lisbon, Iowa
