TO CHICAGO CHAPTER MEMBERSHIP:
It is urgent that everyone in membership call the 9 senate licensing committee member in Springfield. We have an opportunity to pass this Bill and correct dangerous language in the nurse practice Act.
ATTENTION: To all Nurses and the public:
The Chicago Chapter National Black Nurses Association is requesting that all nurses in Illinois work together to pass SB 2151. The CCNBNA has valued legislation that could improve the Practice of Nurses and provide safety for the Public. This is an opportunity for the Chicago Chapter NBNA to make a difference in removing dangerous language from the Nurse Practice Act and allowing nonnurses to administer medication. Time is limited for contacting our Legislators to support SB 2151. Pamela Robbins MSN and Dr. Mildred Taylor DNP have another visit with Senator Michael Hastings soon regarding SB 2151. The CCNBNA Representatives need to tell Senator Hastings that nurses called the Licensing committee and their Senators. Send the Health Policy Committee of CCNBNA an email about your experience with the senators or call contact person Pamela Robbins MSN.
