Please join us in cosponsoring a resolution that supports the goals and ideals of the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. In honor of the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale, a founder of modern nursing, the World Health Organization
has designated 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. With more than four million registered nurses in the United States and more than twenty million registered nurses around the world, it is imperative that we recognize and celebrate
the essential contributions these practitioners provide to the workforce, research, and the health of our nation.
