Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Together, we made our voices heard in Frankfort!  On Friday, 3/22, House Bill 159 passed the Senate with no opposition.  The bill is now headed to the Governor's office for his signature.  Thank you for the calls, texts and emails you sent to both representatives and senators to get this bill through the system and ready to become a Kentucky law.  This bill, HB159, will prevent healthcare professionals from being charged criminally for making a medical error, that makes it good for nurses and nursing and puts Kentucky at the forefront of developing laws to protect healthcare workers.

YOU were an advocate for nurses and nursing issues and YOU made the difference!  Thank you.
