Australian Nursing Journal;Apr2009, Vol. 16 Issue 9, p18
The article reports on the effort of nurses in the U.S. to renew their call for a national universal health system in the country. The California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organising Committee (CNA/NNOC) warned that the proposal for a universal health system would default on the promise and principles set by the administration of President Barack Obama. CNA/NNOC co-president Geri Jenkins claimed that a universal Medicare system would remove incentives for price gouging.
