NFN President Represents Interests of U.S. Nurses at Global Summit in Japan

National Federation of Nurses (NFN) President Barbara, Crane, RN, will represent the issues of nurses across the country at the International Council of Nurses’ global Workforce Forum.

As the only participants from the U.S., Barbara and other members from the American Nurses Association will discuss the issues most critical to nurses in America as well as learn about the work of other countries and how it support NFN’s policy objectives back home.

The "Forum”, which takes places September 16 & 17, will address a variety issues affecting nurses today, with a special focus on violence against nurses. Reducing violence against nurses is one of NFN’s central national policy objectives.

Nurses experience violence in the workplace more than any other profession, but that shouldn’t be an accepted aspect of the job. NFN and its member associations have already made great strides in this area. New York State Nurses Association helped pass a bill that made violence against nurses on the job increase from a misdemeanor to a felony, a protection already enjoyed by other public servants. And Ohio Nurses Association has helped introduce similar legislation.
