In a 5-4 landmark decision, the U.S. Supreme Court today ruled that employees who are represented by a public sector union but elect not to join the union can no longer be compelled to pay “fair share” fees.  The decision in the case,  Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, overturned the Supreme Court’s prior longstanding ruling in Abood v. Detroit Board of Educationthat allowed public employee unions to collect ‘fair share’ fees from non-union members who benefit from the union’s collective bargaining efforts through better wages, benefits and working conditions. The following statement is attributable to American Nurses Association (ANA) President Pamela F. Cipriano, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN:

Nurse midwife shares her joy in caring for women – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889

Nurse midwifery is just one of many roles nurses who specialize in OB/GYN can choose.

They are licensed, independent healthcare providers with prescriptive authority in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam and Puerto Rico.

Although they are well-known for assisting women in labor and delivery, nurse midwives provide many more healthcare services for women and their families.

American Nurses Association Responds to Supreme Court Ruling in Trump v. Hawaii – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889

In a 5-4 landmark decision, the U.S. Supreme Court today ruled that the president has the authority to ban travelers from certain majority-Muslim countries if he thinks that it is necessary to protect the United States, overturning lower court decisions that had struck down three versions of the so-called travel ban. ANA had joined an amicus brief filed by the Association of American Medical Colleges and more than 30 other organizations, representing a wide range of health care professions urging the Supreme Court to reinstate the nationwide injunction against the Trump Administration Proclamation 9645 that indefinitely bars individuals from entering the United States on the basis of their nationality.

Find your power by doing what empowered nurses do – ANA Continues to Speak Out Against Harmful Cuts to Health Care. – (866) 348-2889

Winding down another speech, I was certain I had laid out the most comprehensive, easy-to-follow primer for attaining the most sought-after nursing quality in 2018 — personally and professionally rejuvenated, wake-up-tomorrow-totally-different, “I am nurse” nurse empowerment.
