"The Initiative on the Future of Nursing" (Editorial, September 2009) describes how nurses can contribute their ideas and insight to the design and implementation of health reform. So much of what nurses do directly affects the health care reform goal of providing better quality care for more people at a lower cost. As an OR nurse, I look for ways to provide the best quality care to my patients by using supplies in a way that is both efficient and cost effective.


This article has motivated me to become involved in the Initiative on the Future of Nursing, so that our nation's leaders can hear my voice. I'll also encourage my coworkers to contribute to and participate in health care reform.
