Reply by Nevidjon in response to letter by Mary Ann Helms on The Nursing Shortage: Solutions for the Short and Long Term by Brenda Nevidjon, RN, MSN and Jeanette Ives Erickson, RN, MS, CNA (Jan. 31, 2001)
Ms. Helms has raised a concern of many young people who would like to be nurses and many nurses who would like to further their education. All of us need to be in communication with our elected officials in Congress on an ongoing basis, not only when specific legislation is before them. E-mail makes is convenient to send a message or suggestion to Congress. I hope the OJIN readers do so now or will begin to do so soon.
