"Nurses. This is our watershed moment. Yet, it’s more than that. It’s a grassroots movement to fight towards a common goal.
You must make a decision. Do you want to be a part of history? Can you afford not to? This is an absolute truth. You have the power. Together we can fight to pass federal legislation to mandate nurse:patient ratios for patient and nurse safety. Remember. It’s your life. And your loved ones."

"Doris Carroll BSN, RN-BC, CCRC
Doris Carroll BSN, RN-BC, CCRC is an RN from the Midwest, with a background in OB/GYN, NIH clinical trials, Infectious Diseases, and Primary Care for Adults and Children. Doris started her career in Labor and Delivery, and left that position in the early 90’s to pursue a rare opportunity in the clinical research space. Doris says, “I left inpatient nursing in 1992 when I had the opportunity to work on the cutting edge of NIH research with pregnant women with HIV infection. I loved it, but it was very challenging. Many tears shed back then for our patients. Many died due to little treatment options in the early days of HIV infection. However, those women who enrolled in clinical trials were very brave. They took AZT vs. placebo in a double blind study, 5 times/day! Their participation led to nationwide benchmarks for the standard of care for the treatment of HIV infection in women and children.”
