“From the War Zone to the Home Front: Maine Nurses Support the Mental Health of Veterans and Families”

This year’s Nursing Summit will focus on continuing education in mental health and other areas relative to nursing as nurse leaders play a more crucial role than ever in the innovation and implementation of change to improve patient safety, increase care quality, while managing the complexities of the nursing workforce and controlling costs.

“Nurses have a unique opportunity to cultivate creative and transformational leaders,” stated Donna DeBlois, RN, BSW, MSB, MBA, AHCA, president of OMNE and President/CEO of Home Health Visiting Nurses. “And for nurses, the largest segment of the health care workforce, this translates into highly divergent and dynamic leaders,” she added.

Congressman Poliquin on the Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment

Today, Congressman Bruce Poliquin spoke on the House Floor in support of the Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment. He released the following statement:

“In the Second District, hard-working families gather around the kitchen table and balance their checkbooks. The time has come for Washington to do the same; which is why I have become an original cosponsor of the Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment. This amendment will not only help lower taxes and interest rates, but it will help job creators expand their businesses and create more jobs for the Second District and beyond.”
