Members of the Alaska Nurses Association visited the Capitol in Juneau, Alaska, earlier this year to discuss limited overtime for nurses and patient safety.
During their visit, members met with legislators in support of House Bill 50 and Senate Bill 12. Nurses also met briefly with Gov. Sarah Palin to convey their message.Debbie Thompson, RN, ED (from left); Jamie Easterly, RN; Joshua Meals, RN, BSN; Donna Phillips, RN, BSN; Megan Orien, RN, BSN; and Mary Stackhouse, RN.
