Great morning at the chapter meeting in Charleston, SC! AONE past president Donna Herrin-Griffith opened the meeting and welcomed the 52 chapter leaders in attendance. AONE president Pam Rudisill gave a quick overview of the AONE work done in 2010. A detailed report will besent to all members later in dec. Pam's report is a wonderful celebration of all AONE has done in 2010!
Jo Ann Webb, AONE senior director of federal relations and policy, gave a presentation of things that will (or will not) be addressed in the current lame duck congress. The new Congress will provide opportunities and potental problems the nursing field will face in 2011.
Right now we are in the middle of a panel disucssion "Solutions to Patient Ratios" w/ representatives from CT, IL, NV, OH and WA.
Looking forward to the rest of the afternoon and tomorrow. (and lunch!)
