Congrats MNA Members — Amendment to Allow Unlicensed Personnel to Give Meds is Withdrawn from Bill
Congratulations to all those MNA members and supporters of MNA members who made calls into the legislature over the last two days, as we have just learned that the amendment that would have allowed unlicensed personnel to administer medications was withdrawn from the payment reform bill. Better still, the bill includes language promoted by the MNA to ban the dangerous practice of mandatory overtime. This is the power of the MNA and the power of nursing on display. Stay tuned for further developments in this process as this bill now moves to the house and senate conference committee.
